'SP's suspension in best interests of administration'

Written by: Staff

Chennai, Sep 11 (UNI) The Tamil Nadu government today clarified that the suspension of Superintendent of Police K Premkumar and Inspector Marimuthu was done in the best interest of the administration.

Home Secretary Pavan Raina said former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa attributing motives to the suspensions was unfortunate.

While Mr Premkumar was investigating officer in the Sankararaman murder case involving the Kanchi Seers, Mr Marimuthu was probing the murder of former DMK Minister T Kiruttinan, in which Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's son M K Azhagiri was allegedly involved.

In a rejoinder to her remarks attributing political motives for the administrative action against the two police officers, Mr Raina said as per the recent report of Tamil Nadu Director General of Police D Mukherjee, Mr Premkumar visited the city on September four and instigated approver Ravi Subramanian, who was undergoing treatment at the Government General Hospital, to escape from judicial custody with a motive to embarrass the Government.

Mr Premkumar had also passed derogatory and objectionable comments against the DMK Government. 'In view of the DGP's report, he has been placed under suspension with effect from September eight', he added.
