Acting nearly four months after receiving a sexual harassment complaint against party MLA P K Sasi, the ruling CPI(M) on Monday suspended him for six months from its primary membership as the Opposition Congress demanded a police probe. The decision in this regard was taken at the CPI(M) state committee meeting at AKG Centre, the party headquarters here.

A Democratic Youth Federation of India party worker had filed a complaint on August 14 before the party, alleging the MLA tried to sexually abuse her at the party office at Manarcaud in Palakkad.

The woman had later forwarded the complaint to the party's national leadership, reportedly following a lukewarm response to it here. Reacting to the party decision, Sasi, the Shoranur MLA and Palakkad district secretariat member, said he "accepted it with both hands".
