Neemuch: An Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) was on Thursday suspended here for allegedly posting obscene photos on a local WhatsApp group, police said.
One of the senior police officials confirmed the news and said, "We have suspended ASI Mangilal Pawar for posting obscene pictures on a WhatsApp group."
On Wednesday night, Pawar allegedly posted four obscene photos on the Watsapp group, following which the group administrator raised objections to it.
However, upon realising what he had done, Pawar later apologised for it and claimed that the pictures were posted by mistake as he had pressed 'send' button instead of 'delete'.
However, Neemuch Superintendent of Police (SP) Manoj Kumar Singh, who was one of the members of the group, took cognisance of the matter.
Taking a serious note of the complaint, the Neemuch SP suspended Pawar with immediate effect, the official said.
