Aluva: The Sub Inspector and Grade Assistant Sub Inspector of Aluva police station have been suspended for making false allegation of terrorism links against three Youth Congress activists arrested here. In connection with the incident, SI R Vinod and Grade ASI Rajesh were suspended by the DIG Cory Sanjay Kumar Gurudin. Further, Munambam DySP has been asked to submit a detailed report on the incident.

Earlier, the Youth Congress activists were arrested for destroying public property during a Congress agitation in Aluva. In the remand report against them, the police alleged that they had terrorist links. Following this, the police arrested KSU constituency president Al Amin Ashraf, former Youth Congress constituency general secretary MAK Najeeb and former Youth Congress constituency vice-president Anas Pallikuzhi on Friday morning.

Their lawyer told the Aluva Judicial First Class Magistrate Court that the remand report was issued by the police on terrorism charges. However, the court granted interim bail to the accused.

Earlier, MLA Anwar Sadath had lodged a complaint with the chief minister over the arrest. The Chief Minister then directed the DIG to look into the matter. An investigation by the Home Department found that the allegations levelled against the party leaders were baseless and was made with a clear motive.
