UP: Moradabad SSP suspended for beating up police officers

Moradabad: The Uttar Pradesh government on Sunday suspended Moradabad SSP for allegedly beating up three police officers posted at his residence. The incident reportedly took place when Samajwadi Party leader HT Hasan visting the SSP's residence was asked to wait by latter's staff. A complaint had been lodged with the DIG.

"SSP Rajesh Modak has been suspended for misbehaviour with his followers," Home department sources said here.

Modak reportedly beat his staff posted at his residence in Moradabad with a broom and wiper yesterday for not informing him about the visit of an SP leader and keeping the leader waiting.
