Lucknow: A police constable with Kanpur police was suspended for making derogatory comments against the Muslim community on social media.

Senior superintendent of police, Kanpur, Akhilesh Kumar took the step against constable Arvind Singh Parihar after an in house inquiry indicted him.

The suspended cop was posted at Babupurwa police station in Kanpur. The action was taken after an inquiry was conducted in the case by Circle Officer, Babuourwa, Ajit Kumar Rajak, who confirmed the constable’s hateful comment against Muslims.

The entire incident took place when the suspended cop Arvind Singh Parihar posted a ‘hateful’ response to the news item about the family of Ankit Saxena hosting iftaar.

Ankit Saxena was allegedly stabbed to death by his girlfriend’s relatives in Delhi, still the Iftar was hosted by Ankit’s family in an effort to boost communal harmony.

The matter was highlighted when one Shahid Ansari took the screen shots of the ‘hateful’ comments made by the constable.

Objecting to the post, Parihar made a string of objectionable replies to Ansari on Sunday morning. Ansari then posted screen shots of the constable’s tweets and tagged the chief minister, the director general of police and the CM’s office, which finally led to the suspension of the constable.

Ankit Saxena, 23, a budding photographer, was murdered in front of his family in February by the relatives of a woman he was courting since they were opposed to the inter-faith affair.

Almost five months after Ankit’s death, his father Yashpal had organised an Iftar on Sunday to spread the message of communal harmony, in which Ankit’s neighbour, friends, former bureaucrat and activist Harsh Mander along with Dr Kafeel Khan from Gorakhpur participated.
