Controversial top cop Manoj Abraham, Inspector General of Police, is a Christian fanatic, according to his batch mates at the Police Academy in Hyderabad where the Indian Police Service officers are trained. In a report posted by a website which appeared on November 25, , he rose in position not by merit but by virtue of his proximity with some Christian officers, who are not paragons of probity either.
Kerala CM Vijayan handpicked Abraham to provide security in Sabarimala because he is notorious for using brute force against people and RSS and BJP workers. Also he is a close confidante of Jhon Britas, media advisor to Vijayan.
A colleague who doesn’t want to be quoted told the website: “What made him stand out in the batch was his known hatred for the Hindus.” Another colleague said: “It is Christian senior officers like K J Joseph, Jacob Punnoose and Sibi Mathew (ISRO fake spy case) who are his godfathers in the Kerala Police.”
The CPI(M) and Abraham are on the same page as far as their hatred for RSS and BJP. He threatened poor devotees and abused and manhandled them. One of the demands of Sabarimala Ayyappa Seva Samajam chief, who is on a hunger strike, is removal of Manoj Abraham from Sabarimala duty. He was a total failure as a police officer in his previous postings as City Police Commissioner of Ernakulum and Rural SP in various other districts,” said the colleague. With the coming back of Lok Nath Behra, who was on deputation to the CBI, the Christian lobby in the police has become stronger.
