Six policemen of Kasba Police Station have been suspended on charge of selling recovered cannabis on Tuesday night.
The accused are sub-inspectors Shyamal Majumder and Monir Hossain, assistant sub-inspectors Faruk and Salahuddin, and constables Shahjahan and Abul Quashem.
“The six-member police team seized a huge quantity of cannabis from two private cars at T Ali crossing point. But they deposited only 40 kg to the police station,” said Md Mohiuddin Ahmed, OC of Kasba Police Station.
“Informed, a DB team reached the spot immediately and recovered around 100 kg of cannabis. By the time, buyers of the item fled away,” he said.
The six were suspended as they sold most of the cannabis that they had seized, said Md Iqbal Hossain, additional superintendent of police.
