The UT Police Inspector had allegedly tried "alluring" the DSP dealing with the purchase of targets for shooting ranges
In response to the show cause notice which whistle blower Inspector Anokh Singh was served, he has mentioned that he never received any call from Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Lines, Suman Kumar. The UT Police Inspector, Anokh Singh, had allegedly tried "alluring" the DSP dealing with the purchase of targets for shooting ranges.
"I had given a reply soon after I received the show cause notice. I have mentioned that I had never given a call to DSP Lines, neither have I received any call," said Inspector Anokh Singh.
He also added that he had requested for the call records in order to verify the facts himself. Days after Inspector Anokh Singh's complaint helped the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to arrest SP (City) Desh Raj Singh in an alleged graft case, arm-twisting with the whistle blower started.
DSP (Lines) Suman Kumar reported to the UT Police top brass that on October 29 last year, Anokh Singh told him over the phone that since he was "going to purchase targets for shooting ranges", Singh, who knew one of the parties in contention, could ask them to meet Kumar for a "favour".
According to the notice issued to Anokh Singh by Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Naunihal Singh, "On hearing this, DSP (Lines) told him that he does not entertain such requests nor appreciates such calls. Moreover, the purchase, if any, would be made as per procedure and by the competent authority in the Engineering Department".
Calling it an "allurement for a possible frame-up", the notice asked Anokh Singh why a departmental inquiry should not be initiated against him as this act was tantamount to "grave misconduct, negligence and dereliction of duty".
