Faridkot, August 21

Senior police officers in Faridkot are in the dock over their alleged role in probing a scam of US-made smuggled weapons. The Organised Crime Control Unit (OCCU) of the Punjab Police had started a fresh investigation into the six-year-old case.

After nominating six influential persons of Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and Chandigarh as accused in the scam on Thursday, the OCCU is also investigating the role of many police officers who had given a clean chit to the six accused in February 2015, a source said.

The Faridkot police had recovered eight illegal foreign-made weapons from these persons in February 2015. Other than giving them a clean chit, the police had returned these 'prohibited' weapons to the accused. — TNS
