The state government today suspended Superintendent of Police (SP) of Jalaun district R P Chaturvedi on charges of inefficiency in executing his duty and other irregularities including extortion.
Chaturvedi has been attached with the Regional Training Centre (RTC) at Chunar in Mirzapur district, a Home Department spokesperson said.
Secretary (Home) Jagdish Prasad told The Indian Express that the government had ordered an inquiry into allegations of irregularities against Chaturvedi. The inquiry had been conducted by Jhansi Range DIG Surya Nath Singh.
The inquiry report submitted to the government confirmed that the SP had posted two sub-inspectors (S-Is) — who had misconduct charges in their annual confidential reports (ACRs) —- as station officers at police stations. The inquiry also found him guilty of extortion.
The DIG's report stated that the SP failed to comply with orders issued by the DGP regarding initiating action on crimes taking place in the district and arresting the criminals. The SP also failed to execute his duties as chief of the district police, added the secretary.
Asked about his suspension, Chaturvedi said he was unaware of the reasons behind the action taken against him.
Sources said a group of traders and some local organisations had recently staged demonstrations at the district collectorate demanding action against the "corrupt" SP.
Chaturvedi, a 1999-batch IPS officer, was posted as Jalaun SP on August 3.
