New Delhi, Nov 17 (UNI) The Station House Officer of Uttam Nagar was today suspended in connection with Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's rally at Uttamnagar in West Delhi yesterday.

According to the Delhi Police Headquarters, the SHO had been suspended.

The Delhi Election Commission had recommended action against the police personnel in connection with the Chief Minister's rally.

Delhi Chief Electoral Officer Satbir Sylas Bedi said Ms Dikshit's rally was cancelled and related material impounded as supporters accompanying her blocked a road while canvassing for her.

Moreover, prior permission was not taken from the local police station for holding the rally.

According to the Model Code of Conduct, a candidate's supporters cannot disrupt normal life while electioneering.

The action against the police officials was recommended as they allowed the canvassing in gross violation of the Model Code of Conduct, Ms Bedi added.
