The officer’s suspension comes after it was found that the allegations were true. A sexual harassment complaint had been filed against him a few months ago and the Department’s Internal Committee and District Level Complaints Committee had looked into the same and  investigations  had proved that the allegations were true.  The report had been submitted to the government and following government order he has been suspended.
