Ghaziabad: A Station House Officer (SHO) has
been sent to police lines for his alleged inaction in probing
the murder of an engineering college chairman here, a senior
police official said on Monday.

The decision to transfer SHO of Sihani Gate Suraj Pal
Singh came after police authorities were criticised by
students, industrialists, traders and teachers` associations
for not being able to nab the accused.

Chairman of Sunderdeep Engineering College, Suresh Chand
Gupta was shot dead by unidentified persons in Model Town area
near his residence last Friday.

The SHO has been sent to police lines and security cover
has been provided to Mahender Gupta, elder brother of the
deceased, and his family after the incident, SSP Raghubir Lal
said.

Meanwhile, director general of the college Subhash Chand
Gupta condemned the murder and said `poor` policing was
responsible for the murder.

President of the trader`s association Shiv Shanker Rathi
also criticised the police for their inability in solving the
case of jeweller Atul Gupta, who was murdered in October last
year.
