Two policemen, including a police station in-charge, have been suspended for requesting the court to book (under 110G CrPC) a 3-year-old child on the suspicion of creating law and order problem in Sultanpur.
A person booked under 110G CrPC has to produce guarantors who give an undertaking that they would ensure his good conduct for two to three years.
The incident came to light on Saturday, when Mukesh's father Chandrika Prasad went to the court with his 3-year-old son Mukesh, after receiving a summon. Subsequently, Sub-Divisional Magistrate Ram Prakash Verma quashed the proceedings against Mukesh and issued a show-cause notice to the police officer concerned.
"Looking at the boy, I quashed the report and issued a show-cause notice to Haliapur police station in-charge HP Singh," said Ram Prakash Verma.
Explaining the bizarre incident, Verma said that he received a report from the station officer to book a person living at Urai Chav Majare Kapa village under Haliapur police circle.
As per the procedure, summons were sent to Mukesh's house, following which Chandrika Prasad visited the court with his son and requested to know how his child could create a law and order problem.
SSP Sultanpur DC Mishra on Sunday had ordered an inquiry into the incident. Besides Haliapur SO, constable Tajambul Hussain, who prepared the report, has been suspended.
Circle Officer, Musafir Khana, TS Singh who is conducting the inquiry said, "I have to verify the age of Mukesh and submit the report to the district police chief. I could not visit Mukesh's house today due to the legislative council election," said Singh.
Sources said the police were actually trying to book Mukesh's elder brother 19-year-old Sunil.
Since he was missing, the police moved an application in the court to book his brother. The application was moved on April 22, and Mukesh was asked to appear on May 9.
