BANGALORE: Madiwala Police Inspector K.R. Ravikumar was kept under suspension for dereliction of duty and negligence on Tuesday.

The suspension order issued by Police Commissioner Shankar M. Bidari follows an inquiry into the failure of Mr. Ravikumar to arrest Shabbir Pasha, a resident of Krishnagiri district, for his alleged involvement in a murder case in Mangammanapalya in Madiwala Police station limits on May 22. Shabbir Pasha allegedly kidnapped his step-mother Fakrunnissa and murdered her. Shabbir abandoned her body near Krishnagiri.

The Krishnagiri police registered the case after finding the body on May 24. The case was transferred to Madiwala police station three days ago. Despite having clues of Shabbir’s involvement, Mr. Ravikumar reportedly failed to arrest him, police sources said.
