The accused include SDM Narendra Kumar Meena (RAS), Circle Officer Narayan Tiwari (RPS), DSP Rajulal Meena, District Education Officer Radheshyam Meena (all from Sawai Madhopur) and 20 others.
After getting the preliminary evidence, the government suspended them, if found guilty they will be dismissed from service.
