The Hush Post: Ferozepur IG Gurinder Singh Dhillon has been transferred. This happened, just a day after the CBI arrested a middleman for accepting a bribe of Rs 10 lakh allegedly on behalf of Ferozepur IG of police Gurinder Singh Dhillon. The transfer came about on Saturday. Dhillon has been posted as IG (human rights). Mukhwinder Singh Chinna will be the new Ferozepur IG.
The probe agency carried out searches at Dhillon’s residence in Patiala and his official residence in Ferozepur on Friday after the middleman, Ashok Goyal, named the officer during interrogation.
The CBI also questioned Dhillon at his residence. The action came after the complaint of a retired SSP, Vigilance Bureau, Patiala, Shiv Kumar Sharma, who alleged that he was being falsely implicated in a case registered against him for which an SIT was formed by Dhillon.
Sharma said IG Dhillon had made him the main accused in a case involving torture of patwari Mohan Singh. Sharma was earlier absolved of these charges, but after an inquiry, his name was again included in the case. Sharma, who is out on interim bail, alleged Dhillon demanded bribe for diluting the case.
