IPS officer, who had tweeted that Adityanath govt `targeting` Yadav cops, suspended

Lucknow: Himanshu Kumar, an IPS officer of the Uttar Pradesh cadre, was on Saturday suspended, days after he alleged that seniors are targeting subordinates of particular caste.
Himanshu was suspended for “indiscipline”.
The Uttar Pradesh Police had earlier launched an investigation into the allegations made by the 2010-batch IPS officer in a series of tweets.
Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav raised questions on the suspension of Himanshu Kumar.
“Only policemen of one particular caste are being suspended or transferred. Everybody knows. But will you report that?” Akhilesh asked.
After being suspended, Kumar tweeted: “Truth alone triumphs.”
Earlier, Himanshu had said in the tweet that those police officers with the ‘Yadav’ surname were being targeted.
Himanshu, who was recently transferred to the DGP HQ in Lucknow by the Election Commission, later deleted his tweet.
The IPS officer was earlier posted as the Superintendent of Police in Mainpuri and Firozabad.
