Kakkanad: The Ernakulam collector suspended the newly-wed revenue department couple for violating government employees’ service rules and marrying without legal separation.
The individuals suspended are MP Padmakumar, senior clerk under Kochi Special Tehsildar (RR) and T Smitha, senior clerk under Thrippunithura Special Tehsildar(LR).
The collector’s intervention is based on the complaint lodged by Maradu native and Padmakumar’s first wife.
A probe over the matter revealed that both officials violated the service rules.
