Bilaspur grain market supervisor booked under corruption, criminal conspiracy charges | Chandigarh News


YAMUNANAGAR: The police have booked Yamunanagar district’s Bilaspur grain market supervisor under charges of corruption and criminal conspiracy late night on Sunday.
On the complaint of Bilaspur market committee executive officer (EO) Suman Lata, a case has been filed against Anshul Ratnam, a supervisor at grain market under Section 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and 7 (public servant taking gratification) of the Prevention of Corruption Act at Bilaspur police station on Sunday.
In her complaint, EO Suman said, “A complainant Ayush Gupta while naming Bilaspur grain market employee Anshul recommended that he (Anshul) is working for his unfair benefit and to steal revenue of the government. After listening to the audio clip made by Ayush it appears that Anshul in order to provide benefit to Ayush is talking about obstructing the government procurement (paddy) and stealing government revenue.”
“Therefore, action should be taken against Anshul for misusing his government post of grain market supervisor for obstructing government services and working to provide benefit to traders and himself,” EO Suman said.
As per the information, an audio clip of 7 minutes and 22 seconds reportedly a conversation between Anshul and Ayush went viral on social media on Sunday.
In the viral audio, two persons are heard in a conversation with each other inside a car. One (Ayush) of the persons says to the second (Anshul) that he has talked about his 18,000 quintals (paddy) which will be lifted on the mandi rate plus Rs 40,000 extra. The accused person (reportedly Anshul) sums the total amount to be paid by Ayush to be about Rs 1.61 lakh. The accused later asks Ayush to pay Rs 50,000 in advance and the other person replies that he will discuss the same with someone and revert. The accused also assures that they will provide gate passes at the grain market if the list (of paddy-laden trolleys) and its photograph are provided in advance.
Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) Charuni also shared the audio clip with the press and alleged, “The Meri Fasal Mera Byora (MFMB) portal has become a milking cow for the government officials. No matter how much inconvenience the farmers face from this portal but the officials are earning well.”
BKU Charuni spokesman Rakesh Bains said, “The MFMB portal is causing inconvenience to the farmers but it is benefitting the corrupt officials who are deputed on the ground during the paddy procurement season. The government should tighten the noose around its officials rather than making strict policies for the farmers. The government should increase the vigilance around the officials deputed during paddy procurement season as they are taking unfair benefits by misusing the MFMB portal.”
Bilaspur police station house officer (SHO) Balbir Singh said, “We have registered a case and the investigation is being conducted. Bilaspur mandi EO alleged that Anshul attempted to provide benefit to trader and steal government revenue.”
