Nagpur: Nine policemen of Pardi Police Station were temporarily attached to Police Headquarters by Commissioner of Police Amitesh Kumar after ‘a note of collection’ from illegal dens went viral on social media on Tuesday. A senior officer of the police station will also face action after inquiry, reports said.
The tainted policemen are the members of the Detection Branch (DB) Squad of Pardi Police Station.
