Four policemen, including a Station House Officer, have been suspended for allegedly conniving with builders in illegal excavation of soil from unused government land in Narela, police said.

Following a sting by the Delhi Police’s Vigilance Branch showing the cops’ involvement with builders, the Narela police station SHO and three constables were suspended.

The Crime Branch is investigating the case.

“We have suspended the SHO and three policemen who were seen in the sting by the Vigilance Branch. The role of policemen in other areas is also being investigated,” said Karnal Singh, joint commissioner of police (northern range). The four policemen were suspended on Monday evening.
