You have to clear all suspense account before preparing Balance sheet . you can not finalized the accounts unless you clear suspense account .
1) Ask manager for Bills, cash memo, Invoices and any other documentary evidence to clear Rs 9000/.
Similarly you have to clear balance 26000/- lying in suspense account . After you getting all documentary evidence ( expense) for 35000/- . you pass following entry .

Expense A/c Dr 35000/-
To Suspense A/c Cr 35000/-
( clearance of suspense account )

you can clear suspense account in above manner , however you need documentary evidence to prepare Expense voucher .

You can get supporting documents for the total expense amount from the sales manager and the balance amount can be taken back otherwise the balance amount can be debited to Manager's Imprest Account.
