Five Uttar Pradesh Police officials were suspended on 5 August after Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav's effigy was burnt by Aam Aadmi Party workers in Ghaziabad.

The AAP workers burnt the effigy of the CM to protest the horrific Bulandshahr gangrape case.

Kutchary police post in-charge Narendra Singh, head constable Ramjeet and constables Jitendra, Shishpal and woman constable Hem Lata, are among the suspended police personnel.

The police officers were suspended because the AAP workers burnt the CM's effigy in their presence.

The AAP's Ghaziabad unit also submitted a memorandum to the district magistrate, saying that the Bulandshahr gang-rape case is a "blot" on the state government. The AAP alleged that the Uttar Pradesh government had proved incompetent in terms of providing safety to women.

A case was also registered against 25 AAP activists under Sections 147 and 353 of the IPC and other relevant legal provisions for holding the protest march and burning the effigy of the CM.
