There have been other incidents in the area by some gangs,” Khatra said.Khatra said that Assistant Sub-Inspector Vijay Rattan had been suspended for dereliction of duty as he had failed to investigate the matter seriously and did not inform his seniors about it after the victims complained about the incident.
