2 punjab cops, 1 man arrested by vigilance dept for accepting Rs 1 lakh bribe



Punjab Vigilance Bureau arrested two cops and one man allegedly for accepting Rs 1 Lakh as a bribe.

(By Staff Reporter) Punjab Vigilance Bureau (VB) on Monday arrested a police sub-inspector, Bisman Singh, who was earlier posted as Station House Officer (SHO) at Jalandhar and Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Resham Singh, including a man named Surjit Singh, for taking a bribe of Rs 1 Lakh. All the accused have been arrested on the complaint of Harjinder Kumar, a resident of Rupnagar district, who had approached the VB, alleging that his brother was arrested with his truck in a false case in which the accused showed the recovery of poppy husk in the truck, said a spokesperson of VB. The complainant further informed that the sub-inspector Bisman Singh through Surjit and ASI Resham Singh, had received Rs 11 Lakh in instalments to release his brother and the truck loaded from Srinagar. He further alleged that though the accused police sub-inspector was transferred to police lines in Jalandhar, he demanded more money through his two other intermediaries to help him in this police case. After verification of the facts in the complaint and the material evidence, a VB team arrested Bisman Singh, Resham Singh and Surjit Singh for accepting a bribe of Rs 1 Lakh from the complainant in the presence of two official witnesses. The spokesperson informed that a case under section 7, 7-A of the Prevention of Corruption Act and 120-B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) had been registered against all the accused and further investigation was under progress.
