Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 27 (UNI) Three police officials were today suspended for retracting their statement on the death of a police official in the campus violence in the Changannasery N S S College.
''Dy SP P B Vijayan, Assistant Sub-Inspectors Anthrayose and Mathew have been suspended for retracting from their statements,'' DGP Raman Srivastava told UNI. The three were suspended with immediate effect pending inquiry, he said.
Assistant Sub-Inspector, M C Elias was killed in October last year while he was trying to restrain clashing groups of students belonging to the Students' Federation of India (SFI) and the ABVP in the college campus.
These police officials had earlier stated that they had witnessed ABVP activists attacking Elias.
However, they retracted the statement before the court, which led to their suspension.
