PRAYAGRAJ: The authorities here suspended a police station incharge and a head constable for dereliction of duty in connection with the murder of four members of a Dalit family at a village here.

They were brutally killed at Mohan Ganj Gohri village under the Phaphamau police station area of Allahabad district on Wednesday night.

Phoolchand (50), his wife Meenu Devi (45), daughter Sapna (17) and son Shiva (13) were murdered with sharp weapons while they were asleep.

Police sources said the SSP has suspended the Phaphamau police station incharge, Ram Kewal Patel, and head constable Sushil Singh in connection with the murder.

They have been suspended for not taking seriously a complaint of the victim's family before the murder and dereliction of duty, they said.
