Missing Kerala cop traced to TN

A Circle Inspector of the Kochi city police, who went missing following an argument with his superior officer has been traced to neighbouring Tamil Nadu, police said on Saturday.

Kochi Central Police Station Circle Inspector V.S Navas was reportedly found in Karur railway station by Tamil Nadu railway police.

A team of police personnel from the state has left for Tamil Nadu to bring him back, they said.

He was reported missing since Thursday morning allegedly after an argument with his senior officer over the wireless set on Wednesday night.

His wife had alleged that Navas went missing due to the mental torture by his superior officers.

He was also humiliated by them, she had claimed.

"My husband is an honest officer. He was compelled by some of his superiors to register fake cases. That had actually troubled him mentally. I believe that such a situation might have prompted him to leave home," she told reporters on Friday.

She had also petitioned Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan seeking a probe into the incident.
