(G.N.S) Dt. 29
The state government has issued an order to appoint K Padmakumar, former secretary of Public Sector Restructuring and Internal Audit Board (RIAB) as the managing director of Kerala Automobiles Limited (KAL) at Aralummod here. He was suspended from service over a vigilance case against Malabar Cements Limited (MCL), when he had the additional charge as MCL managing director.
The government order is based on a high court order. The high court had asked the government to reinstate Padmakumar in his parent organization and directed to pass affirmative orders as expeditiously as possible within a period of 20 days from the date of the verdict.
The court order was in response to the writ petition filed by Padmakumar complaining of illegal arrest and suspension from service defying the vigilance manual and misrepresentation before the courts. The high court directed to reinstate Padmakumar in his parent department (RIAB) as secretary and now, the state government has violated the court order though it cites that it has complied to the HC directive.
