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

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.
