Kozhikode: The corporation authority here on Saturday suspended 15 UDF councilors for allegedly protesting during the meeting convened to discuss the Punjab National Bank scam.

On Saturday, UDF and BJP brought an adjournment motion in the council meeting called to discuss the financial fraud in the Punjab National Bank. More than Rs. 12 crores were allegedly defrauded from the accounts of the Kozhikode Corporation.

During the meeting, the opposition led by the UDF and the BJP moved an adjournment motion demanding a CBI probe into the scam. In the meeting of the council of the corporation, confusion arose after the LDF in government rejected the permission for the adjournment motion. After that, members of the opposition protested even though Mayor Beena Philip intervened.

LDF and UDF councilors shouted at each other and raised banners in the meeting. After these events, the authority decided to suspend 15 councilors for a day.

Mayor Beena Philip said that the corporation has submitted a formal complaint to the RBI and the Prime Minister’s office. She added that the corporation will welcome investigations under any agency including CBI into the scam.
