Two constables from the Kharkhauda police station in Meerut district are facing serious allegations of planting a country-made pistol in the motorcycle bag of a teacher, allegedly attempting to falsely implicate him in an Arms Act case. In response to these allegations, Nachiketa Jha, the Inspector General (IG) of Meerut range, has instructed Rohit Singh Sajwan, the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Meerut, to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.
The decision to initiate an investigation came after the family members of the teacher, identified as Ankit Tyagi, staged protests outside the IG’s office on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The family members demanded a comprehensive inquiry into the alleged misconduct of the Kharkhauda police officers involved in the incident. They presented evidence in the form of CCTV footage, which purportedly shows constables Dinesh Singh and Santosh Kumar outside their residence. Another constable was reportedly spotted near a motorcycle.
SP (rural) Kamlesh Bahadur has provided some insight into the situation, stating, “Both constables have been placed on leave to ensure a fair investigation, and the teacher, who was taken into custody, has been released since no arms were found in his possession.”
Bahadur also mentioned that the family members have been requested to provide the complete footage and call detail records (CDR) of the recording. Further actions will be taken based on a thorough examination of this evidence.
The family of teacher Ankit Tyagi has claimed that an ongoing property dispute exists between their family and another. On Tuesday evening, constables had visited their residence, and the family suspects that these officers may have colluded with the opposing party, potentially planting firearms in an attempt to falsely implicate Ankit in a criminal case. The investigation seeks to uncover the truth behind these allegations and ensure justice is served.
