A police constable was terminated from service here for allegedly assisting and providing shelter to a murder accused, officials said Saturday.
The accused constable, Praveen, was involved in several criminal acts and gave shelter to notorious criminal and murder accused Ankit Bhadu last year, they said.
Praveen had allegedly provided Bhadu a vehicle, mobile phones and other facilities after Bhadu murdered a man in Sriganganagar, they said.
"The constable has been terminated from service after approval from the police headquarters," Bikaner SP Pradeep Mohan Sharma said.
Bhadu was killed in a police encounter in Punjab in February this year.
