The policemen are from the Nehru Nagar police station in suburban Kurla.

The action follows an incriminating video that activist Kasim Shaikh had recorded at different periods between March 9 and March 26.

Though most of the suspended cops are constables, but those ranked above from the sub-inspector to inspector level have also faced action.
