Rajasthan police on Monday suspended assistant sub-inspector (ASI), Mohan Singh, after he admitted that there had been a delay of three hours in taking the victim Rakbar to hospital. A four-member committee constituted by the police to look into the delay also transferred three constables to police lines.

Addressing the media at a press conference in Alwar, special DGP (law and order) NRK Reddy said, “There was an error in judgment in trying to respond to the situation. The preliminary investigation suggested there was an error in prioritising the situation.”



In the primary investigation, Reddy claimed the policemen have not been found involved in beating the victim and it was not a case of custodial death.

The police had arrested two accused — Dharmendra Yadav and Paramjeet Singh — on Saturday, while the third, Naresh Singh, was arrested on Sunday. The three are under police custody for five days.
