THRISSUR: City Police Commissioner Ankit Asokan has been directed to be transferred in the controversy related to Thrissur Pooram. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has instructed the DGP in this regard. The decision was taken before the investigation report of the ADGP in charge of law and order. The approval of the Election Commission is required for the transfer of officials. A panel itself should be appointed if a district police chief should be appointed. A panel of three SPs has been provided to the Election Commission by the Chief Minister's office. One person will be selected by the Election Commission. Thrissur Assistant Commissioner Sudarshan will also be transferred.

The ADGP had instructed the government to check whether there were any lapses in the management of the Thrissur Pooram and submit a report to the government. Sources related to the Home Department informed that further action will be taken based on the report. It is important to note that the process is being speeded up in the situation where the footage of the Commissioner stopping the people who came to attend the Pooram has also come out.

The people's representatives are also deeply unhappy with the unnecessary police restrictions on Thrissur Pooram with the Lok Sabha elections around the corner. Minister K Rajan had strongly reacted against the tightening of the conditions of the forest department before Pooram. Front leaders also protested against the police for disappointing the people by delaying the fireworks display.
