The Election Commission of India on Tuesday directed that the Chengalpet superintendent of police in Tamil Nadu be ‘suspended immediately’ and ‘disciplinary proceedings initiated against him’ as he is one of the two accused in a sexual harassment case registered by CB-CID based on a complaint by a lady IPS officer.

This comes a day after the SP was transferred to a non-election post after receiving the approval of the ECI as the model code of conduct is in place in Tamil Nadu, which faces assembly elections on April 6.

“Considering the gravity of the case and report from the Home department of Tamil Nadu, the commission has directed that he be placed under suspension immediately and disciplinary proceedings initiated against him,” read a statement from the ECI signed by secretary Malay Mallick.

The ECI has also sought a report on its order to be sent by March 10 by 11am.

The CB-CID has registered an FIR against the accused under sections 354-A(2) (sexual harassment) and 341, 506(1) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 4 of the Tamil Nadu prohibition of harassment of women Act 1998 against the SP and the first accused — the special DGP law and order, who is sent on leave.

According to a Madras high court order, media is not allowed to publish the names of the accused and the victim.
