A Delhi Police Inspector was transferred after six beer bottles were recovered from his room at Nand Nagri police station in northeast Delhi.
Inspector Sanjay Nagpal, posted as Anti Terror Officer (ATO), was sent to the district lines, a shunted posting following the recovery.
“The Inspector has been transferred and departmental action will be taken against him accordingly,” said SS Yadav, DCP (northeast).
There are allegations that the policeman used to hold regular parties in the police station.
Senior police officers said the policeman could also be suspended in the near future. “We have received information and several complaints that he often held booze parties in his office.
The office of the assistant commissioner of police (ACP) on the first floor was also used for the same. He must also be in the know of things and we might take action against him also,” said a senior police officer.
Police said they also found a refrigerator in his room that had been kept there illegally.
“No officer of the rank of an Inspector is allowed to keep a refrigerator in his room. We are probing these charges too,” said the officer.
Police said there were regular complaints against the Inspector and on Thursday a vigilance team found the allegations to be true. The Inspector had been posted at Nand
Nagri for the past one and a half years. “There are serious allegations against the ACP too and they will also be probed,” said the officer.
