THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Vigilance director Winson M Paul has decided to quit his post following court verdict ordering a further probe against K M Mani in the bar scam case. Paul, who is retiring from service on November 30, has given an application to enter on leave.

Talking to reporters here, Paul said he dealt the case from within the purview of the Act. S P Sukesan will only be in charge of the further probe. There is no need for a further probe under the guidance of the vigilance director. He said that he is stepping down from the post to maintain the reputation of the vigilance.  In some special circumstances, will have to stay away and that is for transparency. When asked whether he feels guilty, he said as I have not done anything wrong there is no need to feel guilty.
