Senior UP Police officer demoted to constable after found with female cop in hotel room

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Police demoted Deputy Superintendent Kripa Shankar Kannaujiya to the rank of constable, three years after he was found in a compromising situation with a female constable at a hotel, media reported.

Kripa Shankar Kanaujia, who previously held the post of Circle Officer (CO) Bighapur in Unnao, has now been reassigned to the 26th Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC) battalion in Gorakhpur, reported India Today.

His downfall began when he went missing following a leave in July 2021.

The cop had taken leave from work, citing family-related reasons, but instead of going back home, he checked into a Kanpur hotel with the female constable.

Kanaujia's wife sought help from SP Unnao when she found that her husband was missing and despite efforts could not trace his whereabouts.

The situation escalated when a surveillance team found that Kanaujia's mobile network ceased functioning after he arrived at a Kanpur hotel.

Police quickly arrived at the hotel and discovered Kanaujia with the female constable, a scene captured by CCTV cameras that provided critical evidence for the ensuing investigation, the report said.

After a thorough review, the government recommended reverting Kripa Shankar Kanaujia to the rank of constable, based on the incident report submitted.

ADG Administration promptly issued the order to enforce this decision, marking the ruin of the once-prominent officer.
