Mohali, January 30
A local CBI court today awarded three-year sentence to a former territory manager of Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) in a seven-year-old corruption case.
Today, the Special Judge, CBI Cases, Mohali, has sentenced Anil Kumar, the then territory manager of BPCL, Lalru, to undergo three years’ rigorous imprisonment with a fine of Rs 20,000. The CBI had registered a case against Anil Kumar on November 25, 2011, under Section 7 of Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 on the complaint of an owner of a petrol pump at Kheri Lakha Singh village, Yamunanagar district.
The complaint had stated that the supply of petroleum products to the complainant’s retail outlet (petrol pump) was stopped and when he contacted Anil for restoring the supply of the products, the latter had demanded a bribe of Rs 3 lakh. After getting the complaint, the CBI had laid a trap and caught the accused red-handed while accepting a bribe of Rs 3 lakh from the complainant. A chargesheet in the case was filed on July 31, 2012, in the court of the Special Judge, CBI Cases, at Patiala in Punjab. The trial court found the accused guilty and convicted him.
