Five cops suspended for links with gangster Nayeem

Five senior police officials have been suspended for their alleged links with gangster Nayeemuddin who was killed in an encounter with the police.

 According to sources, DGP Anurag Sharma has issued order suspending CID Additional SP M. Srinivas Rao, Mirchowk ACP P. Srinivas, CCS ACP Chintamani Srinivas Rao, Kothagudem Inspector Ramgopal and Sangareddy Traffic inspector Mastan. A probe has also been ordered into their assets and if they are found possessing wealth disproportionate to their assets, then further action is likely to be taken against them.

While five officials have been suspended, enquiry is reportedly going against four more police officials while 16 others are likely to face minor punishment for their alleged links with gangster Nayeem. (INN)
