IMPHAL: An IPS officer has been suspended for allegedly employing police officers for personal work at his private residence and using his office truck to transport house building materials, even as Chief Minister N Biren Singh warned senior police officers to refrain from such acts.
PG Singsit, the Commanding Officer of 7 BN Manipur Rifles, was suspended on Tuesday by an order issued by the Manipur Personnel and Administrative Reforms Department “in the exercise of powers conferred by Rule 3(1)(a) of the AIS (Discipline and Appeal) Rules 1969.”
On Wednesday, Chief Minister N Biren Singh issued a stern warning to police officers found using police personnel beyond their official duties assigned to their residences. “It is inhumane. I strongly condemn these acts of using sepoys as builders and other domestic labor. I will not condone such acts,” said Biren, who also holds the house portfolio.
At a press conference held at his office complex, Biren said he received reports of senior officers abusing lower-ranking personnel.
To establish the truth, he called a meeting with senior police officials and an IAS officer on Tuesday and raids were carried out simultaneously at three locations, including the officer’s residence and battalion headquarters. the IPS.
Findings collected during the raid revealed that police personnel were being used beyond the rules by the officer, Biren said. According to the findings, some of the unit’s personnel worked as masons and, unfortunately, one of them suffered head injuries while discharging rocks, Biren added.
It was also found that the battalion’s vehicle, a truck, had been used to transport stones and sand for the purpose of constructing the officer’s private residence.
The CM said an investigation would be carried out at the highest level to take the necessary legal action against the officer. He added that a charge sheet would be drawn up and, if necessary, the case would be reported to the Home Office.
