A day after ADGP Abhay Kumar Singh wrote to former court-appointed special officer Ponn Manickavel to hand over all the idol wing case files to the department, the latter replied on Wednesday that he knows his responsibility and the duty to obey the SC order.
The former special officer, in his reply, said: “Please be informed that I know my responsibility and duty to obey the SC order in true spirit. The Updates CD files in my possession in respect of cases investigated by me will be despatched as soon as the compilation is completed”.
The State government had ordered Ponn Manickavel to hand over all details to Additional Director General of Police Abhay Kumar Singh, as his tenure ended on November 30. Ponn Manickavel had refused to hand over the documents to the government, stating that he was appointed by the court. However, on Monday, the Supreme Court upheld the government order and asked him to hand over all case files to the ADGP, Idol Wing.
