Eight policemen have been suspended by Akhilesh Yadav's Uttar Pradesh government for allegedly fleeing from the spot where DSP Zia-ul-Haque was attacked and killed by a mob in Pratapgarh allegedly on orders of former UP minister Raja Bhaiya after the officer reached the area to look into killing of a village head.
Eight policemen, including inspector of Kunda, have been suspended as they had fled from the scene when DSP was attacked, Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Arun Kumar said today.
Meanwhile, the slain DSP's wife Pravin Azad is demanding a CBI inquiry into the incident alleging that it was a premeditated murder.
Pravin threatened to commit suicide if the chief minister did not come to the spot to see the body. She also said that the body will not be cremated till CM Akhilesh Yadav sees it.
