V Joseph Thomas IPS (Rtd.) expires

Kochi 11th February 2018.

Patron of Kerala State Athletics Association and former DGP of Kerala has passed away in Kochi after a brief illness.

He decorated the post of the president  of Kerala State Athletics Association from 1992 to 1998. And he remained with the association as the Patron after he relinquished the president ship on professional reasons. A strict disciplinarian by nature paved the way for a stricter technical conduct in the athletics competition in his tenure. Sri. Joseph Thomas tried to procure more competition equipments for the use of the Association activities. 

It’s a great lose for the Association, as he was one of the big moral supporter of Association Activities.

We, the members of the Association and the entire athletics fraternity of Kerala join his family members in their prayers.
