Two police officials were closed from Kawalipara police outpost under Dhamrai Police Station on Wednesday evening.
The officers are: Inspector Fazlul Haque, in-charge of the outpost; and Assistant Sub-inspector Shamim of the same outpost, confirmed Dipak Chandra Saha, officer-in-charge of Dhamrai Police Station yesterday.
Saha said the two were attached to Dhaka District Police Lines over allegations of negligence.
A police official, seeking anonymity, said the duo were closed for hiding evidence. Three battery-run auto-rickshaws were seized in a robbery case and kept at the outpost, which went missing, he said. Law enforcers suspect the two officials got rid of those to hide evidence, he added.
The two closed officials could not be reached.
