Senior IPS officer Jacob Thomas Tuesday informed the Kerala government about his intention to quit as the Director of the Vigilance and Anti Corruption Bureau (VACB) in the state.
Thomas, a DGP-rank officer, submitted a letter to the Home Secretary, saying that he wanted to quit the post on personal grounds. The letter would be handed over to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for a final decision. “I would continue my fight against corruption even without the post of the Vigilance Director,’’ Thomas said on his desire to quit.
During the previous UDF regime, Thomas had been shunted out from the vigilance department, allegedly after he took a strong stand against UDF leader K M Mani in the bar bribery case.
