Inspector suspended on graft charges

A day before he was to retire, a Haryana police inspector was placed under suspension on graft charges late on Saturday evening. Following an inquiry by the Rohtak DSP, inspector Ram Krishan Dahiya, the station house officer at Meham police station, was indicted for allegedly accepting a Rs 40,000 bribe and letting go three youngsters, who had been caught for vehicle theft.

When senior officials found out about the incident, Rohtak SP Vivek Sharma ordered an enquiry. The enquiry report held the inspector guilty of graft charges and recommended his suspension. Incidentally Dahiya was to retire on Monday, after completing over 35 years of his service in the police department.

A regular departmental enquiry has also been ordered against the inspector. Sources disclosed that about a week ago, the Meham police station staff caught three youngsters travelling in a stolen Mahindra Bolero and brought them to the police station. Being the station house officer, inspector Dahiya was informed of the incident, but rather than taking action against the trio, he allegedly let them go after accepting Rs 40,000 from them.

Confirming the information, DSP Prithvi Singh, said, "The SHO-Meham police station, Ram Krishan Dahiya has been placed under suspension with immediate effect. No further details could be divulged at this point of time as the matter is under investigation."
