An officer attached to the Medical College police station was suspended on Sunday for posting an offensive message regarding the late CPI(M) leader and former Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan in a WhatsApp group.

City police Commissioner G. Sparjan Kumar placed assistant sub-inspector Uroob under suspension, pending enquiry, in connection with a post he had made in a group maintained by the parents-teachers association of a school at Pothencode. CPI(M) activists had organised a demonstration outside the police station to demand disciplinary action against the officer.
