PATNA: A sub-inspector (SI) was suspended on Thursday after a video showing him getting a massage from a mother of a rape accused inside a police outpost in Saharsa district was widely shared on social media platforms.
The woman is the mother of a rape accused who is under police custody.
An inquiry has been initiated against the accused cop Shashi Bhushan Sinha.
