Superintendent of Police Amit Kumar Singh on Sunday placed Special Sub Inspector (SSI) Chandrasekaran of Vellakoil station under suspension for issuing ‘untraceable’ certificate to a resident of Vellakoil. Mr. Singh told The Hindu that the SSI issued the untraceable certificate against the claim of losing house documents, without registering the case in the Community Service Register.

“Moreover, SSIs are not entitled to issue untraceable certificate even after the registration of the case and inquiry.

“Only Sub-Inspectors are eligible to issue such certificates and hence, the said SSI had to be suspended,” he said.

The house documents were actually not lost but pledged for obtaining loan. – Staff Reporter
