Solan: In a case of corruption, police personnal posted at Parwanoo barrier in Himachal Pradesh were removed following recovery of multi color slips and cash from a register lying inside a police beat box located at the Parwanoo barrier by DIG – Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau Anurag Garg last evening while he was caught amidst a heavy traffic jam.
Finding no policeman to help clear the traffic, the DIG himself alighted from the vehicle and made a check of the nearby beat box.
He found yellow, green and pink slips along with some coded entries made against some truck numbers in a register lying there.
The matter was brought to the notice of the DGP and the Solan SP who immediately took a serious note of this recovery.
SP Hardesh Bisht said he had directed the policemen not to sit inside the beat box soon after joining here as it served no purpose. He added that since these orders were not observed, he had issued a notice to the barrier in charge and an inquiry was being conducted to ascertain the facts.
The entire barrier staff has been removed and shifted to the Solan police lines while bringing it directly under the purview of the Parwanoo police station.
