THE chief of police of Mandurriao, Iloilo City was relieved from his post following the probe on allegations that he indiscriminately fired his gun inside a popular restaurant bar in Smallville complex the other day.

S/Supt. Melvin Mongcal, Iloilo City Police Office (ICPO) director, ordered the relief of C/Insp. Salvador Dagoon as Mandurriao PNP station commander effective Wednesday afternoon.

Replacing Dagoon is C/Insp. Elizer Baclagon who was previously assigned at the ICPO headquarters.

Dagoon was required to report to the ICPO headquarters pending the investigation conducted by the Regional Internal Affairs Service (RIAS) on his alleged actuations inside MO2 Bar and Restaurant early Wednesday morning.

The MO2 management complained that Dagoon fired his gun inside the establishment after refusing to be frisked by security guards.

Dagoon said he went to MO2 to validate reports that security personnel and waiters maul consumers who don’t foot their bills or involved in melees inside the bar.

Dagoon said he was piqued by the arrogant behavior of the security guard who tried to frisk him. He admitted that he was drunk when he entered the MO2 premises.

Mongcal said the relief is not a penalty on Dagoon but is only meant to ensure a smooth and fair investigation on the incident.

The RIAS initiated a motu propio (on its own initiative) investigation on the incident because it involved indiscriminate firing.

PO3 Vicente Silla of RIAS, who is spearheading the initial investigation, said they can subject Dagoon to summary hearing if they find probable cause to file administrative charges against him.

Mongcal also ordered an investigation on the incident.
