Suspended Cop Gets To Keep His Moustache & Job

Bhopal: That a pair of moustache he had honed with care could land him in trouble may never have crossed the mind of Madhya Pradesh Police constable Rakesh Rana, until Assistant Inspector General Prashant Sharma on Friday issued orders to suspend him from service for ‘not improving his appearance’.

Rana, besotted with his kemp of honour, decided to lose his position rather than his self-respect. But on Monday, an order issued by DIG (Personnel), MP police headquarters, stated the suspension order was being revoked with immediate effect as it was not issued by a competent authority.

The suspension order, issued on Friday to Rana, a driver in MP Police’s motor transport wing, surfaced on social media on Sunday.

“During a check, constable Rakesh Rana was found with hair and moustache grown long. He was instructed to cut his hair and trim his moustache as his turnout was awkward, but he did not follow the order,” the order read.

Rana said he will not compromise on this issue as he had been keeping the moustaches since long. “I hail from a Rajput family, moustaches are related to our self-respect,” he added.
