HC suspends sentence of police officers

The Kerala High Court on Monday suspended the sentence of three-year imprisonment awarded to three police officers in a case relating to the custodial death of Udayakumar, 26, at the Fort police station in Thiruvananthapuram in 2005.

The order came on a petition filed by former superintendents of police T.K. Haridas and E.K. Sabu and Deputy Superintendent of Police Ajith Kumar against the Thiruvananthapuram CBI Special Court verdict.

They were sentenced to three years’ imprisonment and a fine of Rs. 5,000 each for destroying evidence and falsifying records.
