Delhi Police Sub-Inspector Faces Suspension Over Alleged Extortion of Funds

New Delhi : Delhi Police have initiated legal proceedings against a Sub-Inspector, Ankit Panwar, for his alleged involvement in the unlawful confinement and extortion of money from an employee of a security company. The incident transpired on September 24 when an individual named Abhishek Mishra was held for an extended period at the Lodhi Colony police station in connection with the theft of a marathon participant’s belongings at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium.

Upon learning of this, Abhishek Mishra’s brother, Anurag, approached the police seeking resolution. Instead, he was purportedly coerced into paying money to settle the matter.

The incident began when a marathon participant sought a secure place to store his belongings, which included wallets, cards, and cash, during a marathon event on October 24. A security guard at JLN Stadium agreed to safeguard the items and provided his contact number. However, when the participant returned to collect his belongings, the guard was nowhere to be found, and his phone was switched off. The participant made a PCR call at 9:10 AM, and Sub-Inspector Ankit Panwar was assigned to the case.

Following a formal complaint filed by the participant at 11:00 AM, the security guard arrived at the police station at 12:30 PM, and his photo was shared with the complainant. The security guard also contacted a lawyer, who was informed by the Sub-Inspector about the evidence against the alleged thief. It was alleged that the investigating officer (IO) demanded money to resolve the matter.

An inquiry was subsequently conducted, which corroborated the allegations. As a result, Sub-Inspector Ankit Panwar was suspended, and the Station House Officer (SHO) of Lodhi Colony police station was temporarily reassigned to the District Line. However, no evidence of SHO/Lodhi Colony’s involvement was found, and he was later reinstated.

The Delhi Police have registered a case against Sub-Inspector Ankit Panwar under sections 342 and 384 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Prevention of Corruption Act (POC Act), based on the complaint filed by PS Vigilance, Delhi.
