AdvertisingThe head constable, Jayveer Singh, has already been suspended by Baghpat Superintendent of Police (SP), Shailesh Kumar Pandey for disposing of the body in an “unethical and unlawful way”.
AdvertisingWhen contacted, Singh said, “I cannot comment anything on my punishment, but it’s true that I had given enough money to the head constable to get the job done.
“Rakesh Kumar Singh, the Kotwali station house officer, has been sent to police lines because he was the head of the police station when the body was disposed of in that manner,” Pandey said.
“This is amply clear in the video that the unclaimed body has been incinerated with tyres, plastic waste and minimal wood which is not only unethical but also against the procedure for burning such bodies,” the Baghpat SP said.
I do not find any fault on my part, yet I have been sent to the police lines.” Police said personnel entrusted with the responsibility of disposing of unclaimed bodies get a sum of Rs 2,700, according to a provision.
