New Delhi: Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde today said there is no change in the government's stand on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's demand for suspension of policemen for alleged dereliction of duty, saying action will be taken only after receiving the inquiry report.

"My stand remains the same. No change in the stand. Action will be taken only after receiving the report," he told reporters here.

He was replying to a question whether the Home Ministry is contemplating suspension of those policemen against whom Kejriwal and his ministerial colleagues are demanding action for alleged dereliction of duty relating to three incidents.

Asked whether the Home Ministry was planning to forcibly evict the protesters from near Rail Bhavan, which is adjacent to the Republic Day celebrations area, Shinde indicated that there was no such plan.
