Three policemen were suspended today and one SHO sent to the lines for
standing as mute witnesses while a dalit woman's hair was cut by
locals after she was found allegedly in an objectionable position with
two youths, official sources said.

While SHO Narkhi Ramashrai Singh were sent to lines, two policemen
Ratan Singh and Rajendra Prasad were suspended, they said.

The hair of a 24-year-old dalit woman had been forcibly cut by locals
in the presence of these policemen on April 15 after she was caught by

objectionable position in Pachwan area.

While the youths were booked by the police on the basis of a complaint
of the family members of the woman, an FIR has been registerd against
over 10 persons including three women, they said.
