ASI suspended following spat with P. Jayarajan’s son

An Assistant Sub-Inspector of Police was suspended for allegedly misbehaving with CPI(M) leader P. Jayarajan’s son on January 10, the police said.

Manoj Kumar (48) attached to Mattanur station in the district has been suspended after a preliminary probe, they said.

A detailed inquiry into the spat between Ashish P. Raj, son of CPI(M) Kannur district secretary P. Jayarajan and the police officer, is going on, the police added.

Ashish, who was returning from Bengaluru by bus with a group of girls, which included his cousin, reached Mattanur in the morning of January 10.

The group was returning after a dance competition in Bhopal.

As the girls wanted to use the washroom, Ashish took them to the police station and requested police personnel, including the officer, to allow them to use it which was refused.

In his complaint, Ashish said the police officer abused them, saying it was not a public toilet.

However, the officer and other police personnel refuted his allegation.

Ashish had demanded in an authoritarian manner that they wanted to use the facility, they said.
