As quoted in the reports, Deputy Superintendent of Police Manjitha Vanzara said that Arpita Chaudhary is accused of violating police rules. Vanzara said that Arpita was not in uniform while on duty and secondly shot a video of herself inside the Langhnaj village police station. Police personnel should follow discipline, which she has not done and hence suspended.
Arpita was recruited in the LRD in 2016 and transferred to Mehasana in 2018, the deputy superintendent told reporters
