Facing heat over the violence in Muzaffarnagar, the Uttar Pradesh government on Sunday suspended and ordered departmental action against the then SSP, Muzaffarnagar, Subhash Chandra Dubey for allegedly failing to control communal incidents in the district.

“A departmental inquiry has been ordered against Mr. Dubey besides suspending him due to his failure in timely controlling communal incidents in Muzaffarnagar”, a Home department release issued here said.

Communal strife in Muzaffarnagar has claimed 47 lives so far.

Mr. Dubey was earlier transferred on September 9 and attached to the DGP office and Praveen Kumar was posted as SSP Muzaffarnagar. Saharanpur DC Mishra was also transferred with Mr. Dubey and attached to DG office.

Tension has been running high in the district since three persons were killed in Kawal village on August 27 over an eve-teasing incident.
