Mysore, Apr 30 (UNI) The district administration today suspended three state government officials, including one for issuing a false caste certificate to the BJP candidate from the reserved H D Kote Constituency for the coming Assembly elections.

Deputy Commissioner and District Election Officer P Manivannan told reporters that Tahasildar T Vijaya was suspended for issuing a ST certificate to Chikkaveera Naika, the BJP candidate from H D Kote constituency, despite being not eligible.
