‘A motivated campaign was launched against me’

Ready to hang up his boots after nearly a year-long controversial tenure, Delhi police chief Neeraj Kumar on Tuesday said a ‘motivated campaign’ was launched against him in the aftermath of the 16 December gang rape incident but maintained that quitting had never crossed his mind.

Strongly defending the police action in handling the massive protests after the incident, the police commissioner, who will retire this month end, said he was personally targeted during his tenure but ruled out involvement of politicians in the campaign aimed at removing him.

‘No, never. I am not a quitter. I don’t believe in running away from situation. So never considered quitting. It was a motivated campaign and it’s over,’ he said when asked whether he contemplated quitting after his removal was demanded by chief minister Sheila Dikshit after the police crackdown on protesters at India Gate and Raj Path.
