A Bengaluru police constable, about a fortnight ago, was suspended for sharing a Facebook post taking a swipe at PM Narendra Modi.

The police constable, Sameel, had shared a post, reading, "Have you seen protests by Armymen earlier? Have you heard of such things? Does the Modi govt need more shame than this one? Is it not enough that you (`neenu' in Kannada) have become Prime Minister?"
