IMPHAL, Sept 3 - Two senior Manipur police officers have been placed under suspension while retirement benefit of a retired Inspector General of Police (IGP) has been withheld as disciplinary action.
The two police officers who have been placed under suspension are SP Senapati district F Gonglin and Imphal East Additional SP (Ops) M Kumarjit while the retired IGP was S Manglemjao, according to orders issued by the Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms.
Although the orders did not mention details, it is believed that the suspension could relate to the case of supply of sub-standard quality belt for State police department.
The order said the police officers were not to leave their stations or headquarter without obtaining permission of the competent authority during the period of suspension.
