CAT quashes plea of 2 cops
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 15
The Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) has quashed the application of two policemen who had appealed against the stoppage of two increments and disciplinary action taken against them after they were held guilty of receiving Rs 50 as bribe.

The court held that there was ample evidence to suggest that the applicants — head constable Shamsher Singh and another constable — had accepted the bribe.

It was alleged that on March 28, 2004, the two posted at the railway traffic lights had stopped a car for wrong entry but had let the offender off after accepting a bribe of Rs 50.

Thereafter, the car driver complained before senior police officials, who appointed an inspector for a preliminary inquiry.

The inspector recorded the statement of the car driver, who claimed that the two policemen who had accepted Rs 50 as bribe were Sikh.

However, the complainant later turned hostile and stated that the two policemen were clean-shaven.

The inquiry officer returned the charges as “not proved” but the disciplinary authority did not agree to the findings of the inquiry officer and after a show-cause notice stopped two increments of the two.

The application was filed on December 15, 2004 but the same was dismissed. Subsequently, a revision petition was filed, but was also rejected on October 9, 2006.

CAT held that considering the circumstantial evidence, the disciplinary authority had found that the charges had been proved against the two. There was ample evidence to hold the two, who had been given sufficient opportunity to defend themselves, guilty.

CAT added that the penalty imposed on the applicants could not be termed shocking to the conscience of the tribunal so as to warrant any interference.
