Government trying to stall idol theft inquiry, Pon Manickavel tells HC

The Tamil Nadu government was not paying the salary of even a sanitary worker deputed to the Idol Wing-Criminal Investigation Department (CID), in an attempt to stall the inquiries being undertaken by it, High Court-appointed special officer and retired Inspector General of Police A.G. Ponn Manickavel told the Madras High Court on Friday.
Mr. Manickavel informed the bench of Justice R. Mahadevan and Justice P. D. Audikesavalu that he was not able to register even a single FIR for the last eight months due to such an attitude of the government and total non co-operation of other police officials.
When the case relating to a contempt plea moved by him against then Chief Secretary Girija Vaidyanathan, former DGP T.K. Rajendran and ADGP Abhay Kumar Singh came up for hearing, Mr. Manickavel informed the court that the government had also refused to provide proper accommodation in Kumbakonam to the members of the Idol Wing, including 21 women officers, who were on official duty and to attend the proceedings of the special court for idol wing cases.
“Sumathi, a sanitary worker employed in the Trichy office has not been paid wages since December 2018 till date despite repeated demands. This apart, the government has not provided funds for day-today expenses of the wing so far,” lawyer Selvaraj who is representing Mr. Manickavel told the bench.
