Maintaining his stance of not tolerating alleged wrongdoings by members of the police department, the Uttarakhand director general of police Ashok Kumar has ordered the suspension of a police post in-charge and a constable. The DGP ordered this action on receiving a complaint about the duo lodging a false case against a citizen and demanding money from the complainant.

According to information provided by the police headquarters, Vikasnagar resident Rakesh Singh met the DGP and submitted his complaint alleging that Dharmawala police post in-charge sub inspector Deepak Maithani and constable Trepan had lodged a fake case against him, manhandled him and phoned his elder brother to demand a sum of Rs one lakh. The complainant also played an audio recording in front of the DGP.

Considering the audio recording the behaviour of the police post in-charge and the constable was found to be suspicious and not according to the decorum of the police. Taking cognisance of this, Kumar ordered the Dehradun senior superintendent of police for immediate suspension of the police post in-charge and the constable. The DGP has further ordered an inquiry by a gazetted officer into the allegations leveled against the duo.
