37 policemen to face action in Bikru case

Lucknow, Nov 22 (TIWN) The Uttar Pradesh Home Department has asked the Additional Director General of Police of Kanpur to take action against 37 policemen for their alleged links with slain gangster Vikas Dubey or dereliction of duty.

In a letter to the DGP earlier this month, the government directed for punishment to 14 policemen. The government said eight of them, including the then Chaubepur SHO, Vinay Tewari, be given exemplary punishment.  The government also asked to take disciplinary action against 23 other policemen after a proper inquiry by an official deputed by the ADG Lucknow/Kanpur, according to the letter.  Last week, the state government had suspended the then Kanpur police chief, Anant Dev, after an SIT probe pointed at a nexus between police and slain gangster Vikas Dubey.  "Anant Dev has been suspended. The action has been taken on the basis of an SIT report," Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Awanish Kumar Awasthi had stated.
