“I do not agree with the mud-slinging in open by Additional Director General of Police R Sreelekha and Transport Commissioner Tomin J Thachankary,” Chennithala told reporters here.

Refuting allegations that there was indiscipline in police force, he said “the dispute between the two officers was personal. I am planning to talk to them to sort out the matter,” he added.

To a query on receipt of a petition from Thachankary seeking permission to prosecute Sreelekha, Chennithala denied having received any such petition.

“I will examine it and take suitable decision when I get it,” he added.
