Hisar, July 21

The court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Ved Prakash Sirohi has held tehsil welfare inspector Rajkumar guilty in a bribery case.

Rajkumar, a resident of Jind district, is employed with the Scheduled and Backward Classes Welfare Department.

He was caught red-handed while seeking a graft for releasing grant under the inter-caste love marriage scheme. The quantum of sentence will be announced on July 22.

According to information, the state Vigilance Bureau had registered a case against Rajkumar on March 30, 2017, on the complaint of Omprakash, a resident of Hisar.

The complainant said he had married a girl belonging to the SC community girl and applied for an incentive of Rs 1.01 lakh announced by the government for inter-caste marriages.

Rajkumar deposited the first installment of Rs 51,000 in his account, but demanded Rs 10,000 for releasing the remaining grant of Rs 50,000.

Omprakash approached the state Vigilance Bureau, which laid a trap and arrested the official red-handed while accepting an amount of Rs 5,000 from the complainant.
