Four sub-inspectors (PSIs) and two constables of Nagpur Police have been suspended for alleged connection with drug traffickers, a senior official said here Wednesday.

The action followed the arrest of Firoz alias Abu Aziz Khan, a notorious criminal, in a drug seizure case, said Joint Commissioner of Police Ravindra Kadam.

Kadam said the investigation revealed that these policemen were allegedly in touch with Khan.

The suspended police personnels were identified as PSI Manoj Orke, Nilesh Purbe, Sajid Mowal and Sharad Shimpne, and police constables Jayanta Selot and Shyam Mishra.

The Crime Branch is conducting further probe, he added.
