Man seeks bribe from Rajpura patwari, son arrested

Chandigarh, June 3

The Punjab Vigilance Bureau (VB) today arrested a person who was collecting money as a bribe from a revenue patwari posted at Rajpura, Patiala district. The arrested person’s father was demanding bribe by impersonating himself as an inspector of the Vigilance Bureau.

Disclosing this, a spokesperson of the Vigilance Bureau said accused Balwinder Singh, alias Guddu, of Rajpura town was demanding Rs 5,00,000 as bribe from Dharampal Singh, revenue patwari, posted at Rajpura, by blackmailing him and was impersonating as an inspector of the bureau.

The spokesperson said the complainant patwari approached the bureau and lodged a complaint in this regard. After finding facts of impersonation, a VB team laid a trap but accused Balwinder Singh didn’t come and sent his son Gurdhiyan Singh for receiving the money from the complainant.

The VB team immediately arrested Gurdhiyan Singh on the spot near the railway bridge in Rajpura red-handed while accepting Rs 50,000 as bribe. — TNS
