HYDERABAD: City Police Commissioner Balwinder Singh on Friday suspended Santoshnagar Sub-Inspector Y. Rajasekhar on charge of harassing a builder for money in connection with a case against the latter.

Inspector of the station, S. Sai Krishna, was transferred for failing to monitor the investigation.

A woman alleged that the builder had sexually exploited her daughter and sought penal action against him by filing a private complaint in a local court. In the name of investigating the case, the SI allegedly started harassing the builder and his wife by repeatedly summoning them to the police station and demanded bribe to close the case.

Based on the builder's complaint, police higher-ups inquired into the allegations and suspended the SI.
