Thiruvananthapuram: The new state police chief will be decided by the cabinet meeting to be convened today. Sudesh Kumar, B. Sandhya and Anil Kant have been shortlisted by the UPSC. Of these, Road Safety Commissioner Anil Kant is the most likely. Although senior Sudesh Kumar is on the three-member list, the slavery controversy is a setback.
