Cop suspended for his 'reel' role

Love for the reel reportedly got an Uttar Pradesh police inspector, who was roped in by a film director for the lead role in his movie “Real Singham” suspended.

According to the reports, the UP police officer Anirudh Singh, who was known as an “encounter specialist”, and was posted with the crime branch in Allahabad, was suspended on charges of being absent from duty without information for more than a month.

Sources in the police department here said that Singh had been posted in the crime branch two months back.

“He suddenly went missing about a month back and all efforts to communicate to him proved futile,” said an official in Allahabad. It later turned out that Singh had been busy with the shooting of the movie “Real Singham” at different locations.  The police officer had also posted the pictures of the shooting on his Facebook pa-ge.

A superintendent of police level official was later asked to probe the matter and on his report that Singh had been absent from duty without approval for the past over one month, he was suspended.

“Singh has been asked to explain his absence without permission. We will take stern action if he fails to explain,” said a police official.

Sources said that Singh was not likely to quit the shooting even if he had to resign from his job. Sources also said that Singh had taken prior permission from his superiors before signing the movie.

Singh had been in the limelight for gunning down several dreaded criminals in encounters at different places in the state in the past few years.

The movie “Real Singham” is being made in Hindi and Bhojpuri and was likely to be completed in the next few months. Singh, who hails from Jalaun district in UP, had been given out of turn promotion for gunning down an alleged maoist Sanjay Kol a few years back.
