Patna, Jan 3 (TheBiharPost/IBNS): The Bihar Government has suspended 23 policemen on the charge of dereliction of duty during the ongoing Prakash Parv being organized to commemorate the 350th birth anniversary of the 10th Sikh guru, Guru Govind Singh in Patna, the capital of Bihar state.
All the cops punished were reportedly found absent from duty or being away from the place of deputation.
“This is a serious security lapse on the part of the cops at the important occasion like Prakash Parv,” Patna’s senior superintendent of police Manu Maharaj told the media on Tuesday.
More than 400,000 Sikh devotees settled across India and abroad have reached Patna to join the religious event while many more are expected to reach here in the next few days.
