    Considering the fact that the charges against you include attempt to murder (which may be punishable with up to life imprisonment) and under Arms Act, usually the deemed suspension may continue till completion of trial. Where the suspension is on account of a serious criminal case, the suspension (or deemed suspension) is not likely to be revoked till you get acquitted in the case or get a discharge from the court. If the case against you is not charge sheeted by police, then also there would be good chance of revocation of suspension (though a departmental inquiry may still be initiated in such situation). However, this is the general experience and ultimately it is the discretion of the competent authority. If the competent authority deems fit, in the facts and circumstances of the individual case, it may revoke the suspension earlier. It may also depend on what is the nature of evidence against you. But, the chances of an earlier revocation of suspension are comparatively less in a case of this nature. You may challenge the suspension in court if you have a good case in your favour.
