EC orders transfer of Chennai top copNDTV Correspondent

Wednesday, March 15, 2006 (Chennai):

The Election Commission has ordered the transfer of Chennai Police Commissioner R Nataraj for violating the model code of conduct ahead of the assembly elections.

Sources said the Commission has sent a letter to the Tamil Nadu government, directing it to "move" Nataraj to a non-election post. The EC’s order comes in reaction to a complaint filed by DMK leader and Union minister A Raja.

Raja had complained that Nataraj recently gave an interview praising Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. He had reportedly said the law and order was best maintained in the state under the leadership of Jayalalithaa, and she was the best Chief Minister the state ever had. (With PTI inputs)
