  • Indian James Bond

Ajit Doval joined the Indian Police Service in 1968 and participated extensively in anti-insurgency operations in Mizoram and Punjab. The IPS officer, known as the "Indian James Bond," worked at Thalassery from January 2, 1972, until June 9, 1972, according to police records.

According to seasoned police sources, Doval, a young officer with only three years of experience, was given the task by K Karunakaran, the previous home minister, when he was the ASP in Kottayam.

Though the Thalassery riot, which broke out on December 28, 1971, only lasted a few days before the CPM stepped in to protect the Muslim community after the RSS was accused of attacking Muslims and their mosques, Karunakaran wanted to stop it from getting worse. As a result, the young IPS officer was given the responsibility.
