UP govt shunts out 626 'tainted' police personnel

Uttar Pradesh government has shunted out over 600 police personnel, including seven inspectors, deployed at various police stations across the state on charges of alleged connivance with criminal and mafia elements.
 
According to the official sources here on Wednesday those who have been shunted out also included 65 sub-inspectors and around five hundred constables.
 
Sources said that many of the cops, who were acted against had been stationed at their current place of working for the past several years.
 
''We had reports that these police personnel were involved in contract business and had nexus with criminal and anti-social elements'', said a senior police official here.
 
A majority of those, shunted out had been sent to the police lines or attached with district and state headquarters, sources said.
 
The official said that it was only the first step toward cleansing the police stations of tainted cops. ''We will also take disciplinary action against them after a thorough probe'', he added.
