Tripura: Five Policemen Suspended for Unprofessionalism


Five policemen in Tripura have been suspended from their duties within a spate of few days, with two suspensions being served on Tuesday.

One police constable Pritam Bhowmik was suspended and forwarded to Agartala CJM court on Tuesday in connection with a rape case. Bhowmik was a personal guard of a VIP in Tripura.

Public Prosecutor Bidyut Sutradhar said that one 31-year old lady was gang-raped on August 12 on the outskirts of Agartala. The lady was kidnapped from the city and later raped.

Sutradhar further informed that the miscreants tried to kill her by silting her throat after the brutal rape. A case was filed in this regard and during investigation it has come to know that Pritam Bhowmik and Nirmal Bhattacharjee who were involved in the cruel incident have been arrested and that Bhowmik was a police constable.

Both the accused were forwarded to Agartala CJM court and later to police custody.

In another case, Sub-Inspector of Amtali police station was suspended due to negligence of duty as he was investigating a murder case. On Sunday, CPI(M) worker Nakul Saha was murdered at Nabin Para under Amtali police station and the case was handled by the SI Maman-Ulla Kaji but due to his negligence in duty he has been suspended.

However, locals alleged that one Sanjib Das, the main accused of the murder fled from the police custody owing to the negligence of SI Kaji.

According to reports, one traffic inspector Sukanta Biswas was arrested in connection to the murder of Bodhisattva Das, a bank manager.
