Alappuzha: NA Ajas, 33, a civil police officer attached to Aluva traffic police station in Kerala, has been suspended from service as he is accused of murdering the woman police constable O Soumya Pushpakaran.
Ernakulam Rural SP K Karthick issued the order based on a preliminary inquiry report against the officer who is currently undergoing treatment at the Alappuzha Medical College, Kerala. He is suffering from burn injuries following the attack.
The Kerala Police have not yet arrested the accused police officer as his condition continues to be serious. He is presently undergoing dialysis as the burn injury has affected his kidneys.
Sources said Ajas confessed to killing Soumya as she had refused to marry him and she was avoiding him ever since. He also reportedly told the Ambalappuzha magistrate that he had no other motive and nobody else was involved.
