Three Hyderabad Police Officers Suspended for Shielding Suspects in Cash Seizure Case

Three police officers in Hyderabad, India, have been suspended for their handling of a ₹18 lakh cash seizure. The officers, identified as Musheerabad Inspector Jahangir Yadav, Chikkadpally ACP A. Yadagiri, and DCP (Central Zone) M. Venkateshwarulu, were found to have acted in a “partisan manner” when they failed to take proper legal action against the individuals involved in the seizure.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) initiated the suspension proceedings based on a report by Special Observers who were investigating the seizure. The report found that the officers had failed to name the accused in the case, despite having the information readily available. Instead, they had booked a case under Cr. PC 102, which does not require the identification of the accused.

The ECI further noted that the officers had attempted to “dilute the case and mislead the investigation” by not taking proper legal action. They could have easily identified the owner of the vehicle, cell phone, and cash, but they chose not to do so.

As a result of their actions, the three officers have been suspended from duty with immediate effect. Disciplinary proceedings will also be initiated against them.

The ECI has also appointed three new officers to take over the vacant positions. DCP (Traffic-III) D. Srinivas will assume the duties of DCP (Central zone), ACP (CCS, DD) K. Madhumohan Reddy will take over as ACP Chikkadpally division, and D. Venkat Reddy (Detective Inspector, Musheerabad police station) will assume the role of Station House Officer.

Director General of Police Anjani Kumar has also invoked the rules of the Telangana State Civil Services (CC& A) and issued separate suspension orders to the three officers.

This incident serves as a reminder that police officers must act in a fair and impartial manner and that they must uphold the law to the fullest extent.
