LUCKNOW: The UP government on Thursday suspended senior IPS officer Anant Deo Tewari for his alleged role in posting and shielding of police officials who were hand-in-glove with slain don Vikas Dubey, a prime accused in Kanpur’s Bikru massacre in which eight police personnel were killed on July 3, reports Pathikrit Chakraborty.
Anant Deo is at present posted as DIG PAC, Moradabad unit. He was Kanpur SSP just before the Bikru carnage and STF DIG when the incident took place.
Additional chief secretary (home) Awanish Awasthi said action against other officers would be taken later. Anant Deo is the 16th IPS officer to have been suspended since Yogi Adityanath took over as CM in March 2017.
