As many as 11 policemen have been suspended for being absent from duty in several police stations of Bihar's Khagaria district, official sources said on Sunday.

The suspensions come barely a few days after largescale violence and arson by protesters during chief minister Nitish Kumar's Adhikar Yatra.

Khagaria district police chief Mithu Prasad suspended the policemen after finding them absent from duty during inspection since Saturday, the sources said.

Those placed under suspension include seven sub-inspectors and four constables, they said.

However, additional director general of police (headquarters) Ravindra Kumar denied that the action was taken against the policemen in the wake of violence during the chief minister's visit to the district.
