Muzaffarnagar, December 27: Two police constables were suspended for alleged dereliction of duty in the case of the killing of a Dalit woman and her five-year-old nephew in Luhari Khurd village of Muzaffarnagar.
Senior Superintendent of Police Anant Dev said Tejbir Singh and Jitender Kumar were yesterday suspended for dereliction of duty in connection with the case of killing of Prachi (22) and her nephew, Sandeep.
Their hacked bodies were found on December 20 in sugarcane fields in the village, leading to a protest by locals who initially refused to hand the bodies over to the police.
