Shahjahanpur : A UP Police Inspector in Shahjahanpur has been suspended after a video that showed him hurling abuses at a BJP leader went viral on the social media.
Superintendent of Police S. Anand said that on Thursday night, Cyber Cell Inspector-in-charge Neeraj Kumar had gone to the residence of BJP leader Virendra Pal Singh Yadav and had an altercation with him.
