Former Kerala police chief T P Senkumar, who is facing a case for anti-minority remarks, has now come under fire from women in the Malayalam film industry for purportedly making derogatory statements about an actress believed to have been abducted and sexually assaulted.

The court has granted the interim bail with some conditions.

The case against the former police chief was registered by Thiruvananthapuram Cyber Police on eight complaints from various organisations alleging that in an interview to a Kochi-based Malayalam publication, the former police chief had made statements aimed at causing communal disharmony. He was booked under Section 153 (A) of the IPC, promoting enmity between different groups on the grounds of religion. The court has posted the case to Monday for further hearing.


Director General of Prosecutions Manjeri Sreedharan Nair had given the legal advice to the government to book Senkumar.

Senkumar had filed an anticipatory bail plea after the Kerala Police on Friday booked him for "controversial" comments to an online vernacular magazine.

The apex court, however, had directed the state government to reinstate Senkumar as DGP on April 29, stating that the officer was transferred by the government "unfairly" and "arbitrarily".
