Refuting allegations that there was indiscipline in police force, he said "the dispute between the two officers was personal. I am planning to talk to them to sort out the matter," he added.

To a query on receipt of a petition from Thachankary seeking permission to prosecute Sreelekha, Chennithala denied having received any such petition.

"I will examine it and take suitable decision when I get it," he added.

Sreelekha's facebook posting which said that she was harassed by Thachankary, also her batch mate, for nearly three decades, had kicked up a controversy. However, Thachankary had denied the allegations.
