Zee Media Bureau
Lucknow: Moradabad SSP Rajesh Modak was suspended by the state government on Sunday after allegedly thrashing his staff when they failed to inform him about the visit of Samajwadi Party (SP) MLA HT Hasan.
"SSP Rajesh Modak has been suspended for misbehaviour with his followers," Home department sources said in Lucknow.
The incident took place when Hasan went to Modak at his residence. After waiting for an hour, he left without meeting the senior cop.
This irked Modak who then beat up the three followers posted at his residence with a broom and wiper for not informing him.
DIG, Moradabad, Amrendra Kumar Sengar RPT Amrendra Kumar Sengar said the three police followers had given him a written complaint yesterday that Modak had beaten them unnecessarily.
"Guman Singh, Sunder Singh and Daya Kishan gave me a written complaint that the SSP, at whose residence they were posted in Moradabad, had beat them without any reason," the DIG said.
He said the complaint had been forwarded to the headquarters.
Modak reportedly beat the police followers posted at his residence in Moradabad yesterday for not informing him about the visit of SP leader S T Hasan and keeping the leader waiting.
Meanwhile, Hasan said the SSP`s staff kept him waiting for over an hour when he had gone to meet him.
He claimed that Modak had only scolded his staff and not beaten anyone in front of him. He said the charge is false and he would write to the Home department asking why the SSP was suspended.
