In charge of a Bhopal police station is an absconder. Believe it or not, when Bhopal police is getting a hard time to trace Upmanyu Saxena, an accused of abetment to suicide, its website declares him as Aisbagh police station in-charge.

If you open the official website of Bhopal police (, you will still find Saxena as in-charge of Aishbagh police station. Saxena has been suspended from the post after a case was registered against at Misrod Police station.

Saxena was transferred from Aishbagh police station to district reserve police (DRP) line Bhopal during the Lok Sabha elections, as his hometown is Bhopal. The name of Upmanyu Saxena is mentioned as Abhimanyu Saxena in the website.

This is not only one case. The names of several police officers and inspectors who have been transferred are still mentioned in the website. For example, T Amongla Aier, who has been transferred to superintendent of police (SP) Traffic and Bhopal Rural after 2013 state assembly elections, is still mentioned as SP, South.

However, Anshuman Singh, who was earlier SP (South), and transferred to police headquarters, had been reinstated after a month of the elections.

Sources said the website of the Bhopal police has not been updated for over a year, as the person who was assigned with the task of the maintenance work of the website cancelled his contract with the police about a year ago.

Deputy inspector of police D Sreenivasa Varma accepted that the website of Bhopal police had not been updated for a long time. "There is some technical problem. But, the website will be updated within 15 days," he said.
