In May 2017, TP Senkumar was reinstated as DGP of Kerala after an 11-month legal battle, when the Supreme Court directed the Vijayan government to post him back as chief.

Kerala Government had removed and transferred TP Senkumar by citing his ineffective performance due to the delay in investigation in the Jisha murder case and the Puttingal fire tragedy.
