Jalandhar, October 26
The flying squad of Vigilance Bureau today arrested the GM of Mining Department, Hoshiarpur, Subhash Chander, for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs 1.5 lakh from the owner of a stone crusher there.
Bhupinder Singh, SP Vigilance (from camp office Bathinda), said that the owner of Harji Stone Crusher Harpreet Singh had complained that the GM was extorting a hefty amount from him every month for allowing him to operate. Other stone crusher owners too had lodged a complaint against him.
Harpreet had complained to the DGP, Vigilance Bureau, 10 days back that Subhash Chander had sought Rs 1.5 lakh from him. The case was handed over to SP Bhupinder Singh who laid a trap.
The moment Harpreet handed over the money, Vigilance officials caught Chander. — TNS
