According to information provided by the police, on March 31, a professor had complained to the DGP through the social media alleging that the said police constable had misbehaved with him. The complainant had said that a suspicious person was laying near his home and had not moved or about 15 minutes. The professor had informed the police control room about this from where it had been relayed to the Patelnagar police station. After some time the police constable phoned him and was informed by the professor about the person near his home. However, the constable allegedly misbehaved and refused to take action citing Covid-19 and other reasons. The allegations were found to be true in a primary probe of the incident directed by the DGP. The response of the constable to the complainant was not good, considering which his suspension was ordered. The DGP stressed that such behaviour during duty will not be tolerated. The department will not tolerate negligence by any police personnel while on duty, added Kumar.
