‘Odisha Police, Don’t Humiliate Family By Sharing Info About Cop’s Suspension On Social Media’

OB Bureau

Bhubaneswar: The Odisha Police tweeted about Smruti Prava Pradhan, IIC of Birmitrapur police station in Odisha’s Sundargarh district, being suspended by DGP Abhay for gross misconduct and dereliction of duty on Friday night.

Reacting to this post, former CBI interim director and Odisha-cadre IPS officer M Nageswar Rao wrote: “Sharing of information on Media &Social Media about the suspension of a police officer, is public humiliation of officer &his/her family. It is inhuman. Punish the guilty but don’t humiliate.”

While tagging the DGP, he requested all concerned to respect human dignity/sensitivity.

The suspension of IIC of Birmitrapur police station came close on the heels of the alleged custody death of Md Tariq Salim, who was detained in connection with the kidnap of businessman Pradeep Kundu.

Tariq, a resident of Karbala Road area in Birmitrapur town, was reportedly apprehended from Simdega district in Jharkhand on Wednesday. His health condition deteriorated the following day and he was rushed to Rourkela Government Hospital (RGH) where he was declared dead.

Family sources, however, said Tariq was picked up from Vedvyas of Rourkela on Wednesday and allegedly tortured, which led to his death.
