Kanpur’s controversial ex-SSP, entire Chaubeypur police station staff transferred
Former Kanpur SSP Anant Deo Tewari and the entire staff of Kanpur’s Chaubeypur police station, comprising 68 police personnel, were transferred on Tuesday.
Anant Deo Tewari was transferred from his present post of DIG STF after a controversial letter of slain Dy SP Devendra Mishra surfaced. In the letter, Mishra had sought action against SO of Chaubeypur police station, Kanpur, Vinay Tewari but Anant Deo Tewari had allegedly ignored the complaint.
Vinay Tewari was earlier suspended, allegedly for passing on information about the police raid on Vikas Dubey’s house, during which eight police personnel were killed by Dubey and his henchmen early on Friday.
The state government transfer order included Anant Deo Tewari and three other IPS officers.
As per the order, Anant Deo Tewari has been transferred as DIG PAC, Moradabad sector, while Sudhir Kumar Singh, who was posted as commandant of 15th battalion PAC in Agra, has replaced him.
Anant Deo Tewari, who was posted as SSP Kanpur till June 15 before being posted as DIG STF after his promotion, got involved in a controversy since the letter by the slain Dy SP became viral on social media. The slain Dy SP’s daughter had made the letter viral on social media, alleging inaction by senior police officers in not removing SO, Chaubeypur, Vinay Tewari despite her late father complaining against him.
There were demands on social media for Anant Deo’s removal from his present post as the STF was investigating the killing of eight policemen during the raid at Vikas Dubey’s house in Kanpur’s Bikru village.
In the other IPS transfers, SSP Moradabad Amit Pathak and SSP Varanasi Prabhakar Chaudhary swapped places.
ENTIRE STAFF SHIFTED
SSP Kanpur Dinesh Kumar P late Tuesday night removed the entire staff of Chaubeypur police station comprising 68 police personnel. The police personnel, including 45 constables and 10 head constables, were sent to the police lines.
The action comes in the wake of evidences emerging that many of the policemen were in league with gangster Vikas Dubey, who along with his aides, killed eight policemen early on Friday.
About 95 policemen of four different police stations are under investigation for their links with Dubey. Three sub-inspectors and a constable have already been suspended.
At least eight migrant labourers were crushed to death, while six others were grievously injured, when an iron rod-loaded truck in which they were travelling met with a major accident on NH-57 on Monday morning. Confirming the deaths, sub-divisional police officer SK Saroj said the labourers, all residents of Rajasthan, were heading to Jammu from Siliguri in West Bengal when the driver lost control and toppled on the roadside.
The Delhi fire control room received at least 20 calls until 9 am on Monday related to the uprooting of trees and wall collapses because of the heavy rain and gusty winds. The calls were received from places such as Delhi Cantonment, Civil Lines, Main Rohtak Road, and Dhaula Khan. The rains and the gusty winds up to 70 km per hour also led to traffic jams in many parts of the city.
The traffic police advised people to avoid stretches such as Narsinghpur area, Jharsa Crossing, Sector 29, Sector 38, Sector 50, Rajeev Chowk, Sheetla Mata Road, Civil Lines, Golf Course Extension Road, Vatika Chowk, Sector 52 and Daulatabad Flyover. “We have deployed teams, and are pumping out water through motors to ensure smooth flow of traffic, but congestions are being reported from many areas,” Ravinder Kumar Tomar, deputy commissioner of police (traffic) said, warning commuters to plan their journeys accordingly.
New Delhi: The heavy rain and gusty winds uprooted trees and led to water logging in Delhi on Monday and triggered power cuts across the city. The India Meteorological Department said thunderstorms were expected to continue in the city accompanied by gusty winds with a speed of 60-90 kilometre per hour. Officials urged residents, especially children, to stay away from electricity poles, sub-stations, transformers, and streetlights.
Delhi was much in need of a relief amid intense heatwave over the last few weeks and heavy rain and thunderstorms did just that. The mercury dropped by around 11 degrees Celsius in nearly 1.5 hours on Monday morning. “Today, between 5:40 am and 7 am, temperature fell by 11 degree Celsius, from 29 degree Celsius to 18 degree Celsius,” the India Meteorological Department said as per news agency ANI. Power blackouts were also reported.
