IPS Rebel

A Communist orientation and an Oxford stint combined to make this IPS officer socially sensitive and pro-poor

KS Subramanian is perhaps the first victim of Hindutva forces as represented by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP). It was on November 6, 1966 when he, then a young Indian Police Service (IPS) officer, was attacked by VHP agitators outside the All India Radio (AIR) building in New Delhi.

The Parishad was taking out a procession towards Parliament demanding a ban on cow slaughter and the 1963-batch Delhi-Himachal Pradesh cadre IPS officer, then SDPO (Sub-Divisional Police Officer), Lajpat Nagar, was deployed on Sansad Marg.
