LUCKNOW: The UP Police has suspended from service the Station Officer of Chaubeypur police station in Kanpur district in view of allegations of his involvement in the killing of eight policemen by criminals during a raid to arrest history-sheeter Vikas Dubey.
“In view of the allegations levelled against SO, he has been suspended and all the allegations are being thoroughly looked into,” IG Kanpur Range Mohit Agarwal told reporters in Kanpur.
