Kochi: A panel headed by an Additional Chief Secretary has said former Director of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Department Jacob Thomas erred by publishing restricted matters in his book.
The three-member panel led Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Subroto Biswas submitted the report to the Chief Minister and the Chief Secretary.
Thomas had created controversy through his book ‘Sraavukalkoppam Neenthumbol’ (Swimming with Sharks).
