Inspector given marching orders

Staff Reporter


MADURAI: An Inspector of Police, who was given accelerated promotion and cash reward for the Imam Ali operation, has been dismissed from service for "dereliction of duty."

V. Subburaj, attached to the Karimedu police station, was suspended early this year pending an enquiry. He was given the marching orders by Commissioner of Police Vijay Kumar on Monday. One of the charges is that Mr. Subburaj "failed" to act on a complaint lodge by one `Karate' Pandiarajan, fearing a threat to his life, in September 2004. He also "concealed" an order of the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court directing him to give protection to the petitioner.

On January 10, 2005, Pandiarajan was hacked to death by a gang of 21 persons at Aruldosspuram in the city. Mr. Subburaj was suspended soon after the murder and investigation pointed to his alleged links with the prime accused in the case.

Mr. Subburaj was among a handful of police personnel involved in the joint operation of the Madurai police and Special Task Force in Bangalore on September 29, 2002, in which suspected Jihad Committee activist Imam Ali and four others were gunned down. Besides a gallantry medal and Rs. 25,000 cash award, the Government also announced (vide C.No. 209175/Medal/1(2)/2004) a one-stage accelerated promotion and a Rs. 1.75 lakh award.
