Acting on recommendations by the West Bengal Human Rights Commission, IG (Planning) Gourav Dutta was on Friday suspended for alleged sexual abuse of a male constable.
"Dutta has been suspended for allegedly sexually abusing one of his male constable attendants and a departmental inquiry has been initiated against him," Director General of Police Bhupinder Singh told the reporters in Kolkata.
"He was suspended on the basis of the recommendations of the State Human Rights Commission about a year ago," Singh said.
Earlier in 2003, the wife of the constable attendant made a complaint to the state government and the State Human Rights Commission. On the basis of the complaint the State HRC recommended punishment for Dutta.
The incident happened when Dutta was DIG Training at the Barrackpore Police Training School in 2003.
