BHOPAL: The Dipnakheda Police Station in Vidisha district of Madhya Pradesh turned into a dance floor basking in shimmer of colourful lights amid the resonance of oomphy music played by a disk jockey (DJ) on Friday evening.
The cops skipped their duties and joined villagers in gyrating to the electrifying tunes of Hindi music near the main entry of the police station (150 km from Bhopal), ostensibly to celebrate the engagement of a police constable.
However, according to informed sources, the dance party was organised to celebrate the deferring of the transfer of the Dipnakheda Police Station in-charge Yogendra Parmar to Ganj Basoda Police Station.
Only two days back, Parmar was transferred from Dipnakheda to Ganj Basoda in, but the transfer was deferred as a departmental enquiry was already pending against the Dipnakheda police station in-charge.
Coming to know about the dance party inside the police station premises, the Vidisha district superintendent of police Vineet Kapoor took stock of the matter and acted immediately against the cops involved in getting the party organised.
“The police station in-charge Yogendra Parmar has been suspended in the matter, while three head constable and constables have been removed from Dipnakheda Police Station and attached to Vidisha district police lines,” the Vidisha SP Vineet Kapoor told the New Indian Express on Sunday.
According to Kapoor, as per primary probe into the entire episode, the dance party was organised by villagers to celebrate the engagement of a constable posted at the same police station.
“We’ve zero tolerance for such acts of indiscipline, which bring bad name to our police force. Owing to this immediate action has been initiated in the matter,” said Kapoor.
He, however, said that he had no knowledge of the party being thrown to celebrate the deferring of the Dipnakheda police station in-charge’s transfer to another police station.
