BHADRAK: Six police personnel of Bhadrak district were on Tuesday suspended by Eastern range DIG Sanjay Kumar for dereliction of duty. The action was taken following the escape of two under-trial prisoners (UTPs) of Bhadrak Special Sub-Jail on Monday.
Bhadrak DSP KK Dangayat said 12 UTPs, including a woman, were being taken back from Chandbali Fast Track Court to Bhadrak special sub-jail on Monday when two UTPs managed to escape at Tihidi Bazaar where the vehicle had halted for drinking water.
