SUV kills 3: Odisha DGP suspends woman cop Snigdharani Suna

Bhubaneswar: Odisha police today placed woman inspector Snigdharani Suna under suspension for ‘gross misconduct’.

DGP Sunil Kumar Bansal initiated departmental proceeding against the IIC whose SUV was involved in a road mishap killing three and injuring six persons.

During the period of suspension, she will remain under the disciplinary control of Superintendent of Police, Sundergarh, the order read.

Earlier in the day, Ajay Jethi — the person who was said to be behind the wheels — managed to secure bail from a local court in Sundargarh.

He was booked under MV Act as he did not have a valid driving license, Sonepur SP Amaresh Kumar Panda had said.

Worth mentioning, Suna and her ‘friend’ Ajay Jethi were travelling in a Maruti Ertiga car reportedly driven by the later when it hit the occupants of an autorickshaw parked on the roadside.

The SUV dashed the three-wheeler while coming on the wrong side of the road on Balangir-Sonepur NH-57.

Soon after the accident, Suna and Jethi fled the spot. Suna was returning from Ratha Jatra duty in Puri on July 12.
