A 32-year-old man was killed after being pushed in front of a moving car allegedly by a senior police officer at Neyyatinkara near here, police said Tuesday.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) (Neyyatinkara) B Harikumar, who is on the run, has been suspended and a case registered against him under Section 302 of the IPC (murder), they said.
The victim, Sanal, sustained severe injuries in the incident and died later at a hospital, officials said.
Trouble broke out on Monday night after Harikumar asked Sanal to move his car which he had parked on the side of the road.
An assistant superintendent of police (ASP) will probe the case, he said.
Harikumar, who was not in uniform, had come to a house in the locality, locals said.
