UP CM suspends SPs of Ferozabad and Lakhimpur Kheri districts
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav tonight suspended two Indian Police Services (IPS) who were posted as Police Chiefs of Ferozabad and Lakhimpuri Kheri districts for failing to control crimes in their areas.
Official sources here said Superintendent of Police (SP) Ferozabad Dr Rakesh Singh was suspended following murder of a Samajwadi Party leader Vinay Yadav this morning.
Later people staged a demonstration against the police as the deceased was the main witness in a murder case against a BSP leader.
The SP of Lakhimpur Kheri district, Satyendra Kumar Singh, was suspended after a daughter of the SP leader was raped in the district two days back.
No new SP has been posted in Ferozabad yet but Arvind Sen has been made the new SP of Lakhimpur Kheri.
