Highway patrol team found doing party with alcohol, meat while on duty

Belgavi: A highway patrol team which was on duty was found consuming alcohol and nonvegetarian food in the duty hours near Nagarala village in the taluk on Nov. 23.

The team of two police personnel in the patrol vehicle (KA 22 G 1818) tried to flee on spotting the cameras. One of the policemen tried to justify their action claiming that they were only having food while on duty.

The action of the patrol staff has raised questions about safety and timely response if the personnel indulge in such behaviour. Of late, citizens have been expressing displeasure about the working of the patrol squads.

Reacting to media’s report, Belagavi Superintendent of Police Bheemashankar Guled said the two policemen of Khadaklat police station have been placed under suspension.

“As soon as the issue came to my attention, I have ordered disciplinary action and placed them under suspension. Also, notices have been issued to the police inspectors of Chikkodi and Khadaklat police stations and the Deputy SP has been asked to file a report”, he said.
