In a disturbing incident, Bihar police officers were captured on camera disposing of an accident victim’s remains in a canal.
Video footage captured in Bihar’s Muzaffarpur district depicts police officers using batons to push a package into a canal, raising questions about their conduct.
Following widespread circulation of the video, authorities took swift action against the officers involved.
A senior police officer acknowledged the error, explaining that only the body parts that couldn’t be recovered were disposed of in the canal.
The incident followed a severe accident, making it challenging to retrieve all the body parts. Those that could be salvaged were sent for postmortem examination.
The victim remains unidentified, and the retrieved body has been placed in a morgue.
Senior Superintendent of Police in Muzaffarpur, Rakesh Kumar, expressed shock over the incident. He announced the suspension of the driver constable and the termination of contracts for two Home Guard jawans involved in the incident.
