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.

          The suspension of istant Commissioner of Police A N Pise of Yeshwanthpur Division, Inspector and 4 policemen is illegal as it has been done at the behest of a foreigner Tanzanian High Commissioner John W H Kijazi in a knee jerk reaction without proper investigation. As bad as the incident might be we must never let a foreigner or foreigners dictate us what we must do in our internal affairs. On the same day an Indian woman was burnt alive in front of her 5 children in Pilibhit district,UP. I do not see anyone from the home ministry flying there to oversee the investigation. A country that does not respect its own women no foreigner can feel safe. If Indian women were safe then this incident of the Tanzanian woman being molested and stripped would not have taken place also. The mowing down of an Indian woman by a Sudanese student should be investigated from a terrorist attack point to view which has been made to look like a driving under influence, a very calculated way to commit the crime.
