Four police officers were suspended after they were caught having a good time in a brothel while on duty.
Authorities in West Bengal, India, raided a brothel in the red light district in Asansol, and discovered four police officers and a convicted murderer who they were supposed to be supervising.
The four officers were responsible for transporting the murderer from a prison in Jharkhand to a hospital for a checkup.
On their way back from the hospital, the officers decided to make a detour to visit the red light district.
During the raid, the prisoner, who was serving a sentence of 7 years in prison for murder, fled the scene.
However, the prisoner who was identified as Baiju Yadav,
made his way back to prison and told authorities he was “forcibly” taken to the brothel.
The four police officers, who were in plain clothes but were armed, were drunk at the time of the raid.
The officers were arrested and later suspended from their jobs. The prison inmate was not charged in the incident.
