A group of students of Jawaharlal Nehru Universitry (JNU) including a woman, was reportedly assaulted by local goons near Asola Sanctuary on August 14 and was later mistreated by police in Haryana’s Surajkund police station.
Four days later to the incident, the sub-inspector who allegedly refused to register the case has been suspended.
Faridabad Police spokesperson said Suresh Kumar was suspended and the investigation into the matter was handed over to Assistant Commissioner of Police, Women, Pooja Dabla.
“The investigation officer would also visit JNU campus to record the statements of the victims,” said the spokesperson.
The case pertains to an attack on a female JNU student and her male friends by a mob at Asola Wildlife Sanctuary on August 14.
