    Thiruvananthapuram: The Home Secretary has suspended two police officers after the department ordered a probe by Vigilance Director against the duo for their alleged attempt in sabotaging the Vigilance probe into the Palarivattom flyover corruption case involving former PWD Minister V K Ebrahim Kunju.

    Vigilance Ernakulam Unit DySP A Ashok Kumar, who was the former Investigating Officer of the case, and current Fort Station House Officer KK Sheri were suspended by the government pending enquiry.

    Vigilance Director Anil Kanth on February 18 submitted a report along with an intelligence report that mentioned the duo. It was on the basis of this report the government issued the suspension orders.

    The report alleged that the DySP tried to sabotage the corruption probe after receiving kickbacks from the accused. Anil Kumar was removed from the probe panel following the report.

    KK Sheri was suspended on the basis of the allegation that he acted as a mediator between the accused and the DySP.
