Three constables of Gonda district police were arrested today following a complaint by the cashier of a liquor company alleging extortion of Rs 1 lakh. Another constable and an employee of the company, both allegedly involved in the crime, were absconding.
Gonda Superintendent of Police J Ravindra Gaud said that a case of extortion, criminal breach of trust and cheating has been registered at the City Kotwali police station against four constables of the Special Operation Group — Vinod Yadav, Waqar Khan, Anil Tiwari and Manoj Singh, and Atul Tiwari, an employee of a liquor company.
He said that the company's cashier Pratap Singh had lodged the complaint alleging that the supervisor of the company and others were returning to Gonda in a vehicle after collecting Rs 10 lakh from liquor shops on Saturday evening when the policemen intercepted their vehicle.
The policemen searched the vehicle and on finding the money, allegedly threatened to seize the money if the employees don't pay them Rs 1 lakh. The supervisor then called Pratap Singh who, along with another employee Atul Tiwari, reached the spot. He told the policemen that he cannot pay from the company's money, but would arrange Rs 1 lakh.
The policemen released the vehicle along with the cash and the employees. Later, Singh said that he gave Rs 1 lakh to Atul tiwari and sent him to the policemen. The SP said during investigation it was revealed that Tiwari was hand in glove with the constables as he had made a phone call to one of the constables and informed him that the company's employees were returning with cash.
