Bihar Police recommends suspension of woman IPS officer

Patna,(BiharTimes): The Bihar Police on Tuesday recommended the suspension of 2006-batch IPS officer, Ansuiya Rana Singh Sahu, to the home department on various charges of corruption during her posting as the SP of Sheikhpura district between March 24, 2012 and Sep 12, 2012. She is currently posted at the police headquarters without any assignment.

According to reports Ansuiya has been found guilty of collecting money from people and bootleggers through her bodyguards. There were also charges against her of allowing gambling dens in the district during her six months of posting in the district.

The police headquarters had reportedly put the mobile phone of her bodyguard under surveillance in order to verify the complaints against her. It was on the basis of his conversation that DGP Abhyanand decided to put the IPS officer under suspension. He has sent the related file to the home department for follow-up action.

Sahu, on the other hand, said she was completely unaware of the charge that her bodyguard Tej Pratap Singh was collecting money from people in her name. She said she got information about the bodyguard’s unlawful activities through a local mediaperson. She said she immediately instructed the DSP to get the matter examined.

Sahu said she had also served a show-cause notice on an SHO of a local police station why gambling den was being run under his nose. Sahu is originally from Odisha.
