‘Fake’ Covid reports: Punjab Govt shifts Vigilance  probe to police

Amritsar, July 9

The state government shifted the case of “false” Covid reports to the local police from the Vigilance Bureau (VB). Questions are being raised over the sudden development even as the accused have applied for a bail in the local court.

The VB got the orders in this regard yesterday. The victims have expressed disappointment, saying the decision had come at a time when VB sleuths were tightening the noose around “rich and influential” suspects.

“This is really bizarre. We have heard about cases of corruption being shifted to the VB, but for the first time, a probe is being shifted from the VB to the local police,” said Raj Kumar Khullar, one of the victims and the complainant in the case. — TNS
