JAIPUR: The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) obtained an expansion of remand for its main accused in the high-profile bribery case involving the prior DIG Bharatpur until July 6.
Accused Pramod Sharma was on five-day remand through which he was widely contested from the ACB officials. SHOs, inspectors and sub-inspectors, who arrived in contact Sharma, were questioned. He’ll be produced in court Monday.
Saurabh Srivastava, ADG, ACB stated,”We’d sought an expansion of Sharma’s remand that was given to us July 6 and today we shall question him about the alleged corruption.”
ACB had detained Sharma on June 24, seemingly the middleman, that had been supposedly caught accepting a bribe of Rs 5 lakh. He had demanded the bribe against the SHO of Udyog Nagar police station in Bharatpur for easing his great service listing . Personal bus proprietor Sharma was used to extort junior police officials claiming to be a close aide of Bharatpur Range ex-DIG Laxman Gaur. Throughout the analysis, ACB discovered not just Sharma shared a fantastic connection with many political leaders but was also seemingly near Gaur and remained at his home.
According to sources, the forecasts made by the accused were from ex-DIG’s home. The officers are to question the prior DIG and Srivastava added,”Currently, we haven’t reached the point of questioning the ex-DIG and are focusing on the junior officials that were connected with Sharma. After we have more information the analysis will proceed in the necessary direction as it evolves.”
After the allegation, Gaur was removed from his post and is awaiting posting orders. After Sharma was detained, cops also contested around a dozen police employees and faced them with the accused. Sharma possessed a tours and travel business.
