'Police officials of particular caste being targeted'
Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday accused the Aditya Nath Yogi government of targeting police officials of a "particular caste", after IPS officer Himanshu Kumar was suspended for "indiscipline". Kumar was recently in news for his controversial tweets accusing senior police officers of targeting subordinates of a particular caste.
"Only policemen of one particular caste are being suspended and transferred and everybody knows about it," said Akhilesh, whose party had all along been accused by political opponents of working in the interest of a particular caste. The Samajwadi Party chief was interacting with mediapersons ahead of a national executive meet.
