JAMMU, Mar 12:

Taking serious note of alleged negligence of three police officers who couldn’t keep a watch on history-sheeter Rajesh Dogra, who was murdered in broad day-light in Mohali area of Punjab on March 4, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Jammu has ordered suspension of a Sub-Inspector (SI) ranked police officer.

Besides, a departmental enquiry has also been initiated against incharge Police Post Sarwal and SHO Bakshi Nagar.

On March 4, 2024, gangsters from Bakes gang murdered Rajesh Dogra alias Mohan Cheer, son of Ved Parkash of Reasi at present Talli Morh, New Plot Jammu, in Mohali area of Punjab.

Despite being a known history-sheeter, who was kept in Bundle A (of the surveillance categories), he was murdered in broad daylight due to an old animosity.

SSP Jammu, Dr Vinod Kumar said that alarming in the case was the apparent negligence displayed by the law enforcement officials of Jammu.

He said despite the prescribed protocols under form number 183 and rule number 703 of the J&K Police manual, neither the beat officer nor the SHO Bakshi Nagar Police Station took appropriate action (of keeping a close watch on the history-sheeter).

Consequently, the SSP Jammu has ordered suspension of SI Mushtaq Ahmed of Police Post Sarwal, who is now shifted to District Police Line Jammu. He has been further directed to deposit all the uniform/Government articles issued to him in stores concerned. The officer is entitled to draw subsistence allowance as admissible under rules.

Additionally, PSI Anil Kumar, incharge Police Post Sarwal and Inspector Satvir Singh, SHO Bakshi Nagar Police Station, face severe departmental action for their failure as a departmental inquiry, led by SP Headquarters, Jammu, has been initiated against them, with a deadline of a fortnight for the submission of findings.
