Lucknow: In the first big action, Uttar Pradesh government, on Saturday, suspended 2010-batch Indian Police Officer (IPS) Himanshu Kumar on charges of indiscipline. His suspension was recommended by the Directorate General of Police (DGP) Javeed Ahmed and was approved by UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

According to the officials, "Kumar has been suspended because of his indiscipline behavior and would remain suspended until the investigation in this regard is completed."

It could be recalled that the IPS officer had recently stated that there has been an onset of discrimination in the state policing system after the Yogi Adityanath Government took the reigns of Uttar Pradesh.

He had also alleged that the DGP office was pressuring for action against the members of one particular caste. Attacking DGP Javed Ahmed he had posted a tweet that read, "Why is DGP office forcing officers to punish people in the name of caste?"

In an another tweet, he had posted, "Security officials are under immense pressure from the new administration to suspend and send to reserve lines all security staff having ‘Yadav’ surname." The tweet posted by him, however, was removed later.

It could also be mentioned that Kumar is already facing a dowry case lodged by his wife in Bihar. The case is registered in Patna High Court which has issued a non-bailable warrant against him.

About Himanshu Kumar:

  • He is a 2010 batch IPS officer.
  • He served as a Superintendent of police in six districts namely Maharajganj, Shravasti, Hapur, Kasganj, Firozabad and Manipur.
  • Recently, he was transferred to DGP HQ in Lucknow by the Election Commission.
