THREE MORE policemen, including an ACP, were suspended by Bengaluru City Police Commissioner N S Megharikh Saturday for failing to act effectively during and after the assault on Tanzanian students. Megharikh said ACP, Malleshwaram sub-division, Ashok Narayan Pise, has been suspended after a probe by additional commissioner of police (West Bengaluru) K S R Charan Reddy.

“I had called the ACP on the day the incident took place and he said all necessary measures have been taken and assured the situation was under control. But he failed to provide more information about the incident when I asked him to brief my senior officials. I came to know that he hadn’t visited the crime scene. The probe also proved his dereliction in duty,” said Megharikh.
Besides ACP Pise, two more policemen were suspended late on Friday. They have been identified as V Jagadeesh, Chief Head Constable, and Constable C K Honnesh. “So far, five policemen have been suspended,” a senior official said. Additional CP Reddy said two more accused have been arrested in the case, taking the number to 11.
