Kochi, Jun 14 A special team of the Kochi City police has launched a probe to trace a Circle Inspector who has been reported missing, police said Friday.
Kochi Central Police Station Circle Inspector V S Navas was reported missing since Thursday morning allegedly after an argument with his senior officer over the wireless set on Wednesday night.
His wife alleged that Navas went missing due to the mental torture by his superior officers.
He was also humiliated by them, she 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 here.
She said she has sent a petition to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan seeking a probe into the incident.
In her petition, she mentioned about the humiliation Navas allegedly suffered at the hands of one official in the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) rank.
A special four-member team headed by DCP G Poonguzhali is probing the case based on a man-missing complaint filed by Navas’s wife, police said.
Talking to reporters in Thriruvananthapuram, state police chief Loknath Behera said the special team would trace the missing officer soon.
“Hopefully, we will get him quickly”, Behera said.
