    Re: is this sentence correct ?

    It's not wrong, but it's awkward. I think most people would use two sentences to say all that.

    The suspect was questioned by the police and was astonished by their line of enquiry. He (strongly) declared he was innocent.

    Adding a word like "strongly" makes the sentence more in keeping with his astonishment by their line of enquiry.
