Angul: DIG (Northern Range) Narasingha Bhola on Monday suspended a woman sub-inspector for dereliction of duty in Angul district.
The suspended policewoman has been identified as an SI of Colliery police station, Sumitra Patra.
The DIG said a woman had recently lodged a complaint of dowry torture at Colliery police station. However, she committed suicide after some days as the SI, who was investigating the case, did not take any steps to redress her grievances.
Taking strong exception to the gross dereliction of duty, the SI was placed under suspension, the DIG added.
