After Kerala House flak, Delhi police told not to bypass state officials

The communication was issued hours after Hindu Sena chief Vishnu Gupta was detained, and later arrested, for breaching peace and tranquillity of an area, said an official.

After furore over its attempt to search the Kerala House, the state government’s official guest house in the capital, the Delhi Police has issued a circular asking asking officials to contact the resident commissioners of the state bhavans in situations requiring preventive action.

The circular, issued by the police on Wednesday, noted that the officials who went to check out a complaint about beef being served at the Kerala House “did not establish liaison with the Resident Commissioner or his representative, while securing the place and making enquiries”.
