Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Mandeep Singh Sidhu has suspended Samana Station House Officer (SHO) Sahib Singh and ASI Jai Parkash for negligence in the registration of a case after recovery of 1,020 narcotic drugs from a man. The action has been taken after a preliminary investigation was carried out by Superintendent of Police (Investigation) Harmeet Singh Hundal.
Hundal said the officials had nabbed the man and recovered narcotic drugs from him but had failed to follow the FIR procedure properly, besides delaying the registration of the case.
The case was registered against Sukhwinder Singh (Sukha) of Samana, who ran a meat shop, after the police acted on a tip-off and recovered drugs from his possession. However, after the case was registered, accused Sukhwinder Singh filed a petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, alleging that he was falsely implicated in the case. The court sent directions to the police for an investigation.
Police officials said the policemen in question had nabbed the right person and had made the recovery from him, but committed negligence by delaying the registration of case.
Hundal said the action was initiated after conducting a preliminary investigation. “Now a departmental inquiry will be conducted,” he said.
