MARGAO: South Goa SP Allen D'Sa on Monday placed PSI Prasanna Bhagat of the Cuncolim police station under suspension pending a departmental inquiry against him for bribery. The suspension is based on a report submitted by DySP Umesh Gaonkar and PI Nelson Albuquerque into the allegations of bribery against Bhagat.
The family of Jason Goes had in a written complaint to DySP Gaonkar alleged that Bhagat had demanded 10,000 for "releasing" Goes from the clutches of the police. Jason was a part of the 11-member team of college students that had gone to Cabo da Rama beach on Friday which turned tragic after two of the students met a watery grave.
Goes' family had complained that Goes was summoned to the Cuncolim police station for two consecutive days where PSI Bhagat held Jason responsible for the deaths of the two youth and threatened to put him into the police lockup. When Jason pleaded innocence and asked to be set free, Bhagat allegedly demanded a sum of 10,000 for his "release".
Further more the car of the suspended PSI has been attached, following the identification by the victims’ parents. The car was used by the disgraced PSI to go to the spot to demand bribe.
On Monday, Cuncolim PI Nelson Albuquerque submitted his report about the incident to DySP Gaonkar who then placed the details before SP Allen D'Sa who subsequently ordered Bhagat's suspension. D'Sa told reporters that a departmental inquiry would soon be initiated against Bhagat. Sources said that Bhagat has courted controversy a number of times for his alleged misdeeds even while serving at other police stations.

Suspension is the beginning to be transferred to another police station and continue the trade.

I was just wondering .................
Do the cops do something to get caught and then get suspended --which is a paid vacation.
I think that's the only way they can get leave, because  cops say they are overworked and are not sanctioned leave.
Nice solution.
