17 policemen suspended


Taking a tough stand against erring policemen, Hubballi-Dharwad Police Commissioner R. Dileep has suspended 17 police personnel and issued show-cause notice to two inspectors for dereliction of duty.

Mr. Dileep said he ordered a probe after six incidents were reported on the 11th day of immersion of the Ganesh idols, and in subsequent days, last month. Though these incidents took place on the same day, they were unrelated. Nagesh D.L., DCP (Law & Order), was asked to conduct a probe and submit report. The inquiry report found dereliction of duty by some policemen.

On the last day of Ganesh idol immersion, the city had witnessed untoward incidents, including stabbing incidents in which one person was killed and several others injured.
