Lucknow, JNN. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who is running on zero-tolerance policy in the case of corruption, is not satisfied with only suspending two IPS officers. CM Yogi Adityanath has also directed to investigate the properties of Mani Lal Patidar, who was the SSP of Prayagraj, suspended in case of corruption and laxity in work.
During his tenure as SSP in Prayagraj, Abhishek Dixit is accused of corruption as well as laxity in work and lack of effective control over subordinates. Mani Lal Patidar, who was the SP of Mahoba, is accused of not taking the required action on the criminals along with demanding bribe. The Chief Minister’s stance against these two officers has become very strict. Abhishek Dixit is an officer of Tamil Nadu cadre and has come to Uttar Pradesh on deputation in 2018.
The Chief Minister has directed to investigate suspended IPS officers Abhishek Dixit and Mani Lal Patidar properties with vigilance. With this, all other police personnel involved in the irregularities of these two officers will be investigated by the Director General of Police. DGPs will be investigated by the policemen involved in any irregularity with them and they will be punished immediately if found guilty.
