Head constable pours out his tale of woe to Sial

Special Correspondent

Money from his provident fund account allegedly withdrawn by a clerk



PREDICAMENT: Head constable Gururaj explaining his case to Director-General and Inspector-General of Police B.S. Sial in Gulbarga on Wednesday.

GULBARGA: Exhibiting rare boldness, a head constable working at the Station Bazaar Police Station poured out his tale of woe to Director-General and Inspector-General of Police B.S. Sial, much to the embarrassment of senior police officials of the district here on Wednesday.

Head constable Gururaj chose the opportunity of the visit of Mr. Sial to the Sanmati Police Guesthouse here to present his case.

Mr. Sial was here to review the law and order and crime situation in the district with senior police officials.

Alleged fraud

Mr. Gururaj presented his case of the alleged fraud committed by a police official who withdrew some money from his (Mr. Gururaj's) General Provident Fund a few years ago, much to the chagrin of senior officials present.

According to the petition submitted by Mr. Gururaj to Mr. Sial, the clerk in charge of the GPF section had allegedly drawn a sum of Rs. 40,000 from his account by forging his signature.

Inquiry

A case has already been registered against the clerk at the Station Bazaar Police Station.

The State Government handed over the inquiry of the case to the Corps of Detectives (CoD) five years ago. However, Mr. Gururaj said till date the inquiry has not been completed.

He complained that no charge sheet has been filed against the clerk. He said he is forced to pay interest on the amount allegedly taken from his account by the clerk.

The Inspector-General of Police, who appeared taken aback for a while, assured Mr. Gururaj that he will inquire into the issue soon after his return to Bangalore.
