Glare on 2 cops over faulty probe

Ranchi, Sept. 26: A sub-divisional police officer and an assistant sub-inspector posted in Garhwa have been found guilty of falsely implicating a youth in a murder case.

DIG (Palamau range) Praveen Kumar received a supervision report on September 20 in a case registered four months ago at Bhavnathpur police station on the basis of dying declaration of Urmila Devi (30), who succumbed to burns at a hospital on April 20.

Kumar found that though the woman blamed her father-in-law Vijay Kant Sao for abetting her self-immolation, investigating officer ASI Shibu Soren held a youth of the locality, Vikash Kumar (19), responsible for the death and filed a chargesheet against him.

The DIG also observed that SDPO of Ranka Madhusudan supported a report of the ASI. In his supervision report, Madhusudan wrote that the woman immolated after the youth tried to outrage her modesty when she was alone at home.

Garhwa SP Michaelraj S. sent the supervision report on September 19, on the direction of Kumar four days earlier.

The Garhwa SP has been directed to suspend Soren while the SDPO has been issued a showcause notice.
