NEW DELHI: After a video showed self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa dancing with some police officials in uniform went viral, two Delhi Police officers were suspended today.
Sanjay Sharma, Station House Officer (SHO) of Vivek Vihar police station, and Braj Bhushan, Assistant Sub-Inspector of GTB Enclave police station, have been suspended, Deputy Commissioner of Police Nupur Prasad said.
Prasad said a photograph of Radhe Maa, reportedly taken on September 28, showed her seated on Sanjay Sharma’s chair and the officer standing next to her with folded hands. Bhushan is seen in a video clip along with four-five other officers in uniform singing with the controversial godwoman, who is also dancing.
“It was found that it is a matter of professional misconduct. Thus the SHO and ASI are suspended with immediate effect. Further action will be taken after a detailed inquiry,” Prasad said. The video was posted on October 3 on the official Facebook page of Radhe Maa, “Param Shradhey Shri Radhe Maa”, which has more than 5 lakh followers.
