Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday suspended a Deputy Superintendent of Police with immediate effect on charge of negligence of duty and ordered a departmental inquiry against him.

On June 05, during an operation to arrest culprits responsible for petrol pump robbery in Chilkana area of Saharanpur on Haryana border, Yadav displayed "gross negligence and laxity" in the discharge of his duty even when the lives of his subordinates were at risk, Srivastava said.
