Congress govt in Chhattisgarh goes after irregularities from earlier regime

The new Congress government is going all out against the inconsistencies from the earlier regime.

It was said that an FIR has been lodged against two IPS officers including a special Director General of police in Chhattisgarh for alleged criminal conspiracy and illegal phone tapping.

The FIR was lodged by the state Economic Offences Wing (EOW) based on findings during investigation into a Civil Supply Corporation scam unearthed in 2015.

While Mukesh Gupta is presently posted as Special DG at the Police Headquarters, while Singh as SP Narayanpur district.

Dubey also revealed that the two senior officials wanted to show certain unlawful phone interceptions as legal, and therefore documents were tampered with and fabricated. Cases have been filed against two officers for various offences.

R K Dubey, now DSP (EOW), on Friday approached the Chhattisgarh High Court, claiming that he was pressurised by the ACB chief to give a certain statement and sought protection citing threat to his life.

Additional advocate general Satish Chandra Verma told the high court that the state government had not exerted any pressure on him, and there will be a fair investigation.
