Police said all the cases against Singh were registered at Azeem Nagar police station in Rampur last year and in most of the cases, Singh is a co-accused with senior Samajwadi Party leader and Rampur MP Azam Khan.
Superintendent of Police, Rampur, Shogun Gautam has written to the anti-corruption department with details of the cases against Singh and recommended departmental action against him.
“There are 18 cases registered against inspector Kushal Veer Singh in total. We sought prosecution sanction from the government in all the cases. The government gave us sanction in 16 cases and we filed chargesheet in those. After obtaining sanction in the remaining two cases, we will file chargesheet in those, too,” said Gautam.
He added that Singh was presently on anticipatory bail and out of jail. The police had filed chargesheet against Singh without arresting him.
According to the Rampur police, Singh is accused of threatening local villagers and grabbing their farm land that was used for “extension” of Mohammad Ali Jauhar University, of which Azam Khan is Chancellor.
