Two days after the police lathicharge in Nalanda, Bihar government on Saturday removed the station house officer and five other police officials, besides 14 constables and 10 home guards posted in Noorsarai police station in the district.

“We have ordered SHO Awadhesh Kumar Singh, three sub-inspectors, two assistant sub-inspectors, 14 constables and 10 home guards to report to the police line,” ADG (HQ) Rajyavardhan Sharma, tasked by CM Nitish Kumar to hold an inquiry, told reporters here.

“We have also ordered registration of FIR against the constable and home guard already suspended in connection with the incident," Sharma said after visiting the spot and meeting the injured at a hospital here.

Over 12 people, including women, were injured when police used batons to disperse a crowd, which was demanding rescue of missing judicial secretary (panchayat) Reena Devi.
