MP cop takes advice from godman on probing murder case, suspended

A police officer in Madhya Pradesh’s Chhatarpur district has been suspended after he allegedly reached out to a self-styled spiritual guru to help solve the murder of a 17-year-old. The incident came to light reportedly after the police arrested the girl’s uncle. The case relates to the body of a 17-year-old girl found in a well in Otapurva village on July 28. Police detained three people on a complaint of the girl’s family, but did not find any evidence against them and eventually released them. The police officer investigating the case turned to the spiritual guru for guidance. In a video, the guru Pandokhar Sarkar is heard telling the policeman that he has written the names of the suspects on a piece of paper and will name everyone but the suspect. That will be his clue about the accused’s identity. The cop Anil Sharma has been suspended and the town inspector Pankaj Sharma transferred to police lines. An inquiry has been ordered into the entire episode.
