Toronto:  An Indian origin Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) officer hailing from the city of Burnaby was charged with two counts of impaired driving according to the media reports.

Burnaby RCMP detachment said constable Paul Pabla is accused in two incidents — both of which took place while he was off-duty, a report in The Link said on Sunday.

“Given that the matters are before the court, no further comment will be provided at this time,” the detachment was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile, Pabla has been suspended and internal Code of Conduct investigations have been launched against him.

The officer is scheduled to appear in provincial court in the Canadian city of Surrey on March 3 and, later on, March 10.(IANS)
