Bengaluru: Ten cops suspended for dereliction of duty

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru

Bengaluru, Jul 17: Ten police personnel, including a sub-inspector and assistant sub-inspector are suspended over dereliction of duty, after a man attempted suicide in Vidhana Soudha last month.

On June 24, 44-year-old Revanna Kumar attempted suicide in the washroom on the third floor of Vidhana Soudha by slashing his throat and wrist.

The ten policemen are suspended as they failed to conduct necessary checks on Kumar before letting him into Vidhana Soudha. This fact was found out during an investigation by City Armed Reserve (CAR) and the joint commissioner of police.

The report states that the police officers were manning the Eastern Gate during the first shift and were required to note down in a register the details of every person entering the Vidhana Soudha. But they neither took down Kumar's details nor checked his entry. This lapse amounts to dereliction of duty.

The suspended police officers are sub-inspector Mahadev, assistant sub-inspector Shivalingaiah, head constable Zakaria, constables Yellappa, Kenneth, Savitha, Seema, Lakshmamma, Anand Naik and Niveditha.
