THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The city police commissioner has withdrawn the suspension of police officials over the deviation in the route of Minister of Industries P Rajeev’s official vehicle. The suspension of sub inspector S S Saburajan and senior civil police officer N G Sunil, who escorted minister’s vehicle, has been revoked. Widespread protests were launched following the suspension of the officials.

The policemen in vehicle number 11 of the control room were assigned from Pallichal area to pilot the minister, who went to Ernakulam from Neyyattinkara. Generally, the escort is provided to Vetturoad via Karamana - Killipalam - Attakulangara - Enchakkal.
