A police inspector was suspended for allegedly arresting a pregnant woman and her mother-in-law in a “false” abduction case to favour his relatives, the police said on Tuesday.

Rajesh Kumar Pandey, Inspector Unjh police station, has been suspended for arresting Naurangi Devi and her mother-in-law Navrang Devi, 60, on August 20, said Superintendent of Police Rajesh S.

The suspension came after police received a complaint that the inspector filed a false abduction case against Bholanath Maurya, her mother Navrang Devi and sister-in-law Naurangi Devi after Maurya had a “love marriage” with one Deepika Tripathi on August 18, he said.

During investigation it was found that Pandey favoured his relatives and arrested the duo, the SP said, adding that it was shown in records that the women were held from the Unjh area, but actually they were picked up from their house in Jaunpur.

A detailed probe is underway, he said.
