A police constable in Janjgir-Champa, Chhattisgarh has been sacked after an audio clip of him warning a police officer that he will become a Maoist went viral.
Janjgir-Champa Superintendent of Police (SP) Neetu Kamal said: "Traffic constable Pushpraj Singh used to be absent from work without permission. Today (Friday), he was dismissed from duty for indiscipline."
But he refused to accept the notice from the police officer, and threatened to become a Maoist or join the ISI (Pakistan intelligence agency) while accusing the department of harassment. The SP sacked him late on Friday.
