Rajeshwar Yadav, the then Assistant Regional Transport Officer (ARTO) of Barabanki, has been suspended in connection with the fake ambulance papers case, sources in the transport office said on Thursday.

Yadav is currently posted at the Regional Transport Office (RTO), Ballia.

A special investigation team (SIT) was set up by the Uttar Pradesh Police to probe the case.
