A police constable suspended by a superintendent of police for allegedly being in league with bootleggers was reinstated a day later by a deputy inspector general of police.
Last week, Ahmedabad (rural) SP Gagandeep Gambhir transferred police constable Yashwantsinh, who was earlier posted with the local Crime Branch under her watch, to Viramgam and ordered an inquiry against him.
Soon afterwards, a vigilance team raided a liquor den in Detroj, which falls under the jurisdiction of Gambhir, and seized Indian Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) worth over Rs 1 lakh.
Apparently, Yashwantsinh had tipped off the vigilance team about the liquor den to settle scores with Gambhir. When Gambhir discovered this, she placed Yashwantsinh under suspension.
A day later on Wednesday, DIG (Ahmedabad range) R B Brahmbhatt revoked the suspension order and reinstated the constable in the Rapid Response (RR) cell, which is under his charge.
Brahmbhatt said, "I have not been briefed about the details of this case. But the suspension has no basis. There are clear-cut government guidelines that no one can be suspended without proper evidence. That is why I have reinstated him."
Gambhir refused to comment on the matter.
