Law oficer among three booked for sending money to judgeAugust 17th, 2008 - 12:37 am ICT by IANS
Chandigarh, Aug 16 (IANS) The police have registered a corruption case against three people, including additional advocate general of Haryana Sanjeev Bansal, after a Punjab and Haryana High Court judge complained that a bag containing Rs.1.5 million was delivered to her house here. “We have registered a case under the Prevention of Corruption Act against the additional advocate general of Haryana, Sanjeev Bansal, his munshi (assistant) Parkash and a Delhi-based man, Ravinder Singh,” Assistant Superintendent of Police Madur Verma told IANS here Saturday.
“The police has also arrested Parkash for the further questioning,” the official said.
According to the complaint, Prakash allegedly delivered a bag full of money at the residence of Justice Nirmaljit Kaur here Wednesday night.
“The accounts given by Sanjeev and Parkash are contradictory and we have doubts about their authenticity. We still have to trace the Delhi-based man,” added Verma who is the investigating officer of the case.
Parkash told the police that Bansal had sent him to deliver the cash and that the money had come from Delhi.
But Bansal claimed that the money was to be delivered to one Nirmal Singh in Sector-18 in lieu of a property deal but Parkash had mistakenly delivered it to the wrong address, the police official said.
