Bengaluru: The Central Government has accepted the resignation of 2011-batch IPS officer K Annamalai, popularly known as Singham of Karnataka, from Indian Police Service.
Annamalai had earlier this year submitted his resignation from IPS after serving the department for over nine years. He had submitted his resignation on May 28, this year while he was serving as the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Bengaluru South.
In an open letter to his friends, the officer, who was currently serving as DCP (South) in Bengaluru, said that he has taken the decision after contemplating for about six months.
“Last year, my visit to Kailash Manasarovar was an eyeopener as it helped me to see my priorities in life better. Madhukar Shetty sir’s life in a way made me to re-examine my own life. All good things had to come to an end and I have decided now my time in khaki is done,” Annamalai said in his letter, referring to the death of his senior colleague Shetty, who died in December.
Annamalai had gained popularity in coastal Karnataka when he was posted as the Superintendent of Police in Chikmagalur and Udupi Districts.
