Lucknow: Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday raised questions on the suspension of Himanshu Kumar, an IPS officer of the Uttar Pradesh cadre.

"Only policemen of one particular caste are being suspended or transferred. Everybody knows. But will you report that?" Akhilesh asked.

 

Kumar was suspended days after he alleged that seniors are targeting subordinates of particular caste.

The Uttar Pradesh Police had earlier launched an investigation into the allegations made by the 2010-batch IPS officer in a series of tweets.

Himanshu, who was recently transferred to the DGP HQ in Lucknow by the Election Commission, later deleted his tweet.

The IPS officer was earlier posted as the Superintendent of Police in Mainpuri and Firozabad.
