The Kerala High Court on Monday granted interim bail to former Kerala police chief T P Senkumar, an accused in a case pertaining to the controversial remarks allegedly promoting enmity between different religions.

Justice B Sudheendra Kumar granted Senkumar the interim relief on his plea for anticipatory bail in the case and slated the matter for detailed hearing next Monday.

In his plea seeking anticipatory bail, Senkumar said he had only a "friendly talk" with the reporter, who was not permitted to record the conversation. A case has also been booked against the magazine which published the controversial interview.

Senkumar had moved the Supreme Court against the orders of the Kerala high court and the Central Administrative Tribunal, which had upheld the government's decision to transfer him. He also said that he had sent a notice to the publication in this regard. The discussion was based on these statistics but the case was registered against him without looking or referring to these statistics, Senkumar said. "The remarks of the former state police chief amounts to insulting the actress as well as all women engaged in the film field".

Senkumar, who won a historic legal battle with the CPI (M)-led Kerala government over his removal as state DGP, had retired from service on June 30.
