Rot in system exposed: Rebeiro

By Our Staff Reporter

BHUBANESWAR DEC. 3 . The former Mumbai Police Commissioner, Julio Rebeiro, today said the arrest of more policemen could not be ruled out in the Telgi fake stamp paper scam.

At a press conference here, Mr. Rebeiro said that he was shocked at the news of the arrest of the former Mumbai Commissioner, R.S. Sharma, in the scam. Though he considered Mr. Sharma a competent officer, his arrest had exposed the rot that had set within the system, he said. "The morale of the force obviously cannot be good. I would not be surprised if more heads roll. Though I feel sorry for Mr. Sharma, it is good that people like him have been arrested."

Mr. Rebeiro, who heads the anti-piracy operations of the India Music Industries (IMI), was here to sensitise Orissa police officers about piracy problems prevailing in the music industry.

Referring to allegations that top police posts in Mumbai were being auctioned, Mr. Rebeiro said that he had been hearing about the allegations since long. "Now, I have every reason to believe these allegations," he added.
