Poojapura Grade ASI Sunil Lal was the person suspended, sources said.
In another development, the City Commissioner suspended Reghu, a policeman in the AR camp, for the loss of revolver and bullets. The issue came to light after the police recovered the revolver and bullets when one Rafeeq was taken into custody from Kozhikode railway station.
