Mumbai: According to latest reports, an Assistant Sub Inspector and two Head Constables of Kasa Police Station have also been suspended in connection with the Palghar lynching case. Two police inspectors had already been suspended.
As many as 35 policemen were transferred to other police stations and headquarters across the district on Tuesday and this development came after a petition filed in Bombay High Court sought the case be investigated by National Investigation Agency (NIA).
The brutal killing of two seers and their driver in Palghar had raised questions after the government remained silent.
However, the police had arrested around 110 people, including nine juveniles. Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray had assured swift action and arrest of those responsible for the incident.
