Two witnesses examined in DSP graft case

Two witnesses were examined by a Special CBI Court on Thursday in the case against Punjab Police DSP Raka Ghira, who was arrested by the anti-corruption branch of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in July 2011 from her residence in Sector 15. The two witnesses examined included Head Constable Gurcharan Singh, who submitted the record file of Ghira. The court has adjourned the case to March 18 for examination of more witnesses. In July 2011, when Raka Ghirra was posted as DSP in Mohali, she was caught accepting a bribe of Rs 1 lakh. The CBI sleuths had laid a trap at her residence on the complaint of a builder, one Krishna Kumar Malhotra. The builder had alleged that the DSP demanded a bribe of Rs 2 lakh from him to settle an investigation in the complaint against Malhotra in a land dispute case in Mullanpur village.
