Toronto, Sept 2 (ANI): The investigation into four Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officers and three prison workers allegedly watching a sex romp between two lesbian cellmates on CCTV cameras, has led to six of them being suspended without pay.

The incident, which had taken place at the Kalmoops Regional Correctional Centre in British Columbia, saw police suspending the officers while officials decide if further disciplinary action is warranted.

From surveillance footage, four Mounties and three civilian jail staff were allegedly seen watching a video monitor for seven minutes.

The decision was made after a review of the work status of the officers implicated in the incident, a supervising officer with 20 years on the force, and two of three constables who'd been in service ranging from one to seven years.

RCMP Inspector Tim Shields said a fourth officer is still under investigation.

"He is currently away on personal holiday outside of the province and we should have more to say regarding the decision on his duty status shortly," the Globe and Mail quoted him as saying.

Randy Diehl, the city's chief administrative officer, said the city will wait for results of the RCMP investigation before taking further action toward the employees based on their collective agreement.

Gayle Nelson, president of the union representing the suspended workers, said she personally finds the incident upsetting. (ANI)
