Assault on Tanzanian girl: Top cop axed

tanzanian-womanAdditional Commissioner of Police of Yeshwanthpur area Mr P Aswathnarayan has been suspended for dereliction of duty on the day of assault on the Tanzanian girl in Bengaluru.

He is the fifth officer to have been suspended after a report pointed out laxity on the part of Mr Aswanth and others when a violent mob went berserk. They were allegedly acted as spectators when the mob stripped a Tanzanian girl student and burnt two cars on Sunday night.The report said- “they could have alerted their senior officials about the seriousness of the incident or called for more backup so that it could have been sent to avert the incident”. The report took cognizance of the statement of the victim who charged that two constables at the way-side, did not protect her from the mob and stood watching despite she running towards them seeking help.

The state government submitted a report to the officials of Ministry of External Affairs, who arrived in the city on Friday.
