Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Oct 16: The resignation of IPS officer Annamalai Kuppusamy has been accepted. 

Annamalai had resigned on May 28 this year days after the general election results were announced. He had said that he did not want to resign when the elections were being held and his services were required by the government. 

Annamalai was serving as DCP in Bengaluru when he resigned,

Annamalai was known as a strict and upright officer feared by criminals and anti-social elements. During his stint as SP of Udupi, he kept a tight grip on fringe elements and earned the love and respect of the public, so much so that when he was transferred, people protested.

Hailing from Karur in Tamil Nadu, Annamalai began his career as ASP of Karkala sub-division in 2013, before becoming SP of Udupi and Chikkamagaluru districts. He was later transferred to Bengaluru from where he resigned.

Annamalai had cited personal reasons for his resignation. But it is widely believed that he has political ambitions.

The letter signed by Robin Vanaraj, Under Secretary to the Governor of the Karnataka says that competent authority accepted his resignation and he has been relieved from his duties with effect from 15 September 2019. The letter was issued today. The intervening period between the cessation of duties and issue of the notification is treated as ‘dies-non’

    Looks like Annamalai doesn't have any opponents unlike Senthil who was accused being anti national and was against abrogation of article 370 and even local sand mafias accused him as corrupt.
