Kozhikode: A woman sub inspector has been suspended for registering a false sexual assault case against her landlord when he asked her to pay the rent dues. Sugunavalli, the sub inspector of Kozhikode Medical College Assistant Commissioner Office was suspended. The case was investigated by Feroke Assistant Commissioner AM Siddique.
A family from Panniyankara had lodged a complaint against the SI citing that she had not paid the rent dues for the last four months. Though the circle inspector summoned her as part of the probe, Sugunavalli did not turn up first.
Four days later, she reached Panniyankara station to file a complaint against the landlord's son-in-law. She stated that he forcefully grasped her hand and took away her wedding ring. Sugunavalli also complained that the landlord owes her Rs 1 lakh including Rs 70,000 she gave him as advance.
Following this, Panniyankara police registered a case against the son-in-law based on the SI’s complaint. However, it was found out in the investigation that Sugunavalli’s complaint was fake. Thereby, the City Police Commissioner directed for a departmental probe against Sugunavalli.
