The State Police on Friday opened a criminal inquiry against former State Police Chief T.P. Senkumar on the suspicion of having attempted to promote enmity between different groups on grounds of religion. The case has been registered by the Cyber Police under Section 153 (A) of the IPC which is non-bailable.

DGP Loknath Behera handed over the complaints to ADGP (Crime) Nitin Agarwal, who in turn sought legal opinion from Prosecution Director-General Manjeri Sreedharan Nair.

The case was registered for his statements in a recent interview, allegedly hurting communal harmony.

If proved guilty, he could face up to five years of imprisonment. Senkumar had last week been invited to join the BJP.

Senkumar gave the controversial interview to a magazine after retiring as DGP.

The report quotes police sources as saying that the case was registered after receiving positive response from the DG.

The publisher of the online magazine, Samakalikamalayalam.com that published the interview has been listed as co-accused in the case.

Senkumar had said in the interview to the magazine that of every 100 births in the State, 42 belong to the Muslims, who constitute only 27 per cent of the state population. "Although the Christian birth rate is coming down, their population is not falling because of the conversions they are doing", Senkumar said.

A police investigation was initiated against him on Wednesday.
