Vijay Kumar resigns from his position as MHA’s security advisor due to personal reasons

A decorated police officer, K Vijay Kumar, who was credited with eliminating forest brigand Veerappan, has resigned from his position as the senior security advisor of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

Having put in his papers some time ago for personal reasons, Kumar has now relocated to Chennai from Delhi.

Over the telephone, he told PTI that he had decided to end his tenure with the MHA because of personal reasons.

Ajit Doval, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, MHA officials, and the chiefs of police forces of all states were thanked for their cooperation during Kumar’s tenure.

In addition to Jammu and Kashmir, Kumar advised the government on Left-Wing Extremism (LWE).

In 2012, the 1975-batch Indian Police Service (IPS) officer retired from his position as the director general of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and was appointed senior security officer of the MHA.

After serving as the governor of Jammu and Kashmir’s advisor, he was reappointed as MHA’s senior security advisor.

In addition to this, Kumar served as the chief of the Special Task Force (STF), Tamil Nadu, which was tasked with hunting down Veerappan, the commissioner of the Chennai Police and the inspector general of the Border Security Force (BSF) in Kashmir.

A meticulously planned operation led by Kumar in Tamil Nadu resulted in Veerappan’s death in 2004.
