'I don't want to say that again, don't test our patience': BJP's Annamalai bats a warning for TN Police!

In a tone of warning the Tamil Nadu police, Tamil Nadu BJP President K Annamalai has slammed the state law enforcement agency and urged not to test the patience of the party. He demanded the police department to take action against those who had spread false statements over the death of India's Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat and other military personnel, who died in the military chopper crash on Wednesday in the Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu. 

While the Indian Air Force has ordered an inquiry into the accident, the Tamil Nadu Police have also deployed special teams to probe the accident and investigate the witnesses. On Thursday, Tamil Nadu DGP C Sylendra Babu had held a closed-door meeting with the high-ranking police officials in the Nilgiris concerning the investigation and the Nilgiris Police had filed a case against the accident under the grounds of unnatural death.

Sylendra Babu has affirmed that the probe is underway and the state police department had also issued a warning that stern action will be taken against those who spread fake news and information over the death of General Rawat, his wife, and other military officials. However, the state unit of the Central ruling party has accused Sylendra Babu of not having control over the Tamil Nadu police. 

Tamil Nadu BJP President Annamalai has alleged that the Tamil Nadu police is not under the control of Sylendra Babu. He said, "The state police has slipped away from the hands of DGP. Stern action must be taken against those who spread false news around the death of army personnel." By citing that the BJP is currently ruling 17 states, Annamalai said, "I don't want to say that again. Don't test our patience."

It must be noted that on Thursday, a special investigation team, led by Nilgiris ADSP Muthumanickam, was formed to investigate the crash and the reports say that the probing team of the Tamil Nadu police had questioned 26 witnesses as of Friday including local residents and the tourists. The officials had also deployed drones to check for more evidence at the crash site. Bipin Rawat was travelling to deliver a lecture at the Defense Service Staff College and his loss as the Chief of Defence Staff had saddened the country and become irreplaceable for the defence ecosystem.
