Sriram Venkitaraman, who was made general manager of the State Civil Supplies Corporation, will be replaced as new district collector by V R Krishna Teja.

Thiruvanathapuram:

The Kerala government on Monday transferred IAS officer Sriram Venkitaraman as district collector and executive magistrate of Alappuzha, apparently under pressure from protesting organisations.

Venkitaraman, who was made general manager of the State Civil Supplies Corporation, will be replaced as new district collector by V R Krishna Teja.

Venkitaraman, who had allegedly caused the death of a journalist in a case of drink driving in 2019, was made the district collector last week. His appointment had sparked widespread protests from various Muslim organisations in Kerala, particularly the pro-CPI(M) Sunni Muslim sect led by prominent scholar Kanthapuram A P Aboobacker Musaliyar.
