Abohar, August 30

As investigations into alleged bribery at the Gumjal inter-state check post continued, one more Home Guard, Paramjeet, has been booked in the case.

Earlier, Home Guard Subhash Chander was allegedly caught on camera taking money from a truck driver at a check post along Rajasthan border and was booked for corruption. A video of the incident had gone viral. SSP Harjit Singh had ordered an investigation by DSP Gurmeet Singh into the case.

ASI Pritpal Singh, who was in charge of the police post, was also suspended and sent to the Police Lines.

The police have set up special check posts near Punjab’s border along Rajasthan on the Abohar-Sriganganagar highway, Abohar-Hanumangarh state highway, Abohar-Hindumalkot Defence Road, and Abohar-Dabwali road. Equipped with high-powered CCTVs, these check posts are primarily aimed at preventing inter-state drug and liquor smuggling.
