PATNA: A police inspector posted in Khagaria district of Bihar has been placed under suspension for sharing a morphed image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his WhatsApp group.
The police acted against Mohammad Islam Ansari after he was found guilty of sharing a morphed image of the Prime Minister with LeT chief Hafiz Saeed.
Reports said soon after the post was shared, a BJP leader brought the matter to the notice of Khagaria district superintendent of police which ordered an inquiry.
During the inquiry, the charges against the police inspector were found to be true after which he was placed under suspension.
The cop clarified that his grandson had inadvertently posted the message in the cop but his clarification failed to satisfy the department.
“The PM was mentioned as traitor in the picture,” Munger range DIG Vikas Vaibhav told The Times of India adding departmental proceedings would also be initiated against the cop.
