NDTV Published on Apr 15, 2018
A senior police officer in Uttar Pradesh's Jhansi district has been suspended after an audio recording of an alleged phone conversation between him and a criminal about his "impending encounter" went viral. In the eight-minute audio, Suneet Kumar Singh, station house officer (SHO) of Mauranipur police station, is allegedly heard telling Lekhraj Yadav - accused in dozens of murder, kidnapping and extortion cases - that his name tops the state police's encounter list. Mr Singh allegedly then says that if Yadav wanted to save himself, he should "manage" local BJP leaders.
