Railways Vigilance catches GRP Inspector redhanded while taking Bribe

Bhatinda Jn (BTI): The Vigilance Bureau today caught sub-inspector of the Government Railway Police (GRP) while taking bribe from father of a youngster who committed suicide in May last year.

Tehal Singh, a resident of Ramgarh Bhagtuana, Jaito tehsil, approached the Bathinda Vigilance Bureau and alleged that SI Jagdish Chandra had demanded a bribe of Rs 10,000 from him.

Tehal Singh said in May 2013, his son committed suicide by jumping off in front of a train. The area, where his son committed suicide, lay in the jurisdiction of the GRP. Based on the suicide note recovered from the deceased’s pocket, the GRP registered a case of abatement to suicide against his wife, mother-in-law and two brothers-in-law.

However, the GRP did not present a challan in the court. Tehal Singh alleged that GRP SI Jagdish Chandra demanded Rs 30,000 for presenting the challan, but the deal was fixed at Rs 10,000.

DSP Des Raj said accused Jagdish Chandra was arrested at his home today for accepting bribe.
