By Newsgram Staff Writer

Jharkhand police suspended four constables on Saturday after it emerged that they had taken along a convicted prisoner to an ill famed red light area in neighbouring Asansol district in West Bengal.

On Friday, the police personnel had escorted the prisoner, serving a seven-year prison term for murder, for a health check-up at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences in Ranchi, around 200 km from the Koderma jail.

The prisoner, identified as Baiju Yadav, returned to the prison on Friday night and told authorities that he was “forcibly” taken to the red light area, jail sources told HT.

The four police personnel, who are said to have been drunk at the time of the raid, are in custody of Asansol police. Jharkhand police contacted their West Bengal counterparts only after Yadav informed them about the incident.

“We have directed a probe in the matter and the four policemen have been suspended until further notice,” said Mr DK Pandey, Jharkhand’s director general of police.

Jail sources their act came to light only after a team of Asansol police raided the red light area and arrested the policemen, who carried arms, but sported civil dress.

Five incidents of jail breaks have taken place in Jharkhand since 2012.
