Srinagar: Two policemen were placed under suspension and a probe was ordered against a station house officer (SHO) in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district after a video showing cops interrogating two people went viral on social media.
In a statement issued on Saturday, a police spokesperson said that a video purported to be of a police investigation/ interrogation is doing rounds on social media.
“The same has been found to be pertaining to blind murder case of March 2021 of PS Pattan which was solved last month,” he said.
The accused — a man and a woman, he said shown in video had been arrested for the murder of the woman suspect’s husband.
“The act of the video is highly unprofessional and unbecoming of a disciplined police, the police spokesman said, adding two officials have been suspended for the same.
“An inquiry has been initiated against the SHO concerned and the supervisory officer has been reprimanded”, the spokesman added.
