Court asks IGP to file reply on Dec 2

  • Special Judge Sushil Kumar Garg directed Inspector General of Police Gurinder Singh Dhillon to file reply on December 2 on the CBI application
  • The CBI said the application had been filed after the accused refused the agency's request for giving his voice sample in a case registered on August 14, 2018, on the basis of a written complaint by Shiv Kumar Sharma

The CBI said the application had been filed after the accused refused the agency's request to give his voice sample in a case registered on August 14, 2018, on the basis of a written complaint of Shiv Kumar Sharma.

In the complaint, it was alleged that Gurinder Singh Dhillon, the then IGP, Ferozepur Range, had demanded a bribe of Rs 22 lakh. One Ashok Goyal had accepted Rs 5 lakh in Chandigarh on behalf of Dhillon on August 9, 2018. Further, Rs 17 lakh were demanded for giving a clean chit to the complainant, who was facing a criminal case in Ferozepur and for returning important seized documents. After the registration of the case, a trap was laid and Goyal was arrested amid the presence of independent witnesses.

The CBI alleged that after acceptance of the bribe from Sharma, Goyal had called up Dhillon. The conversation between the two was recorded in the presence of independent witnesses and sealed on the spot. The agency said prior to laying of the trap by the CBI, the matter was discussed by the accused with Dhillon.

For the purpose of investigation of case, the recorded voice was required to be compared with the Dhillon's voice sample, it said.
