Taking note of bosses in anti-corruption department indulging in corrupt practices, a city court on Friday ordered the registration of a criminal case against joint commissioner of police (Vigilance) and against suspended special commissioner of police (anti-corruption).
The two are accused of implicating a crime branch inspector and two police officers in a false corruption case by forging investigation records.
Exposing the corruption racket run by the top bosses of vigilance department and anti-corruption department in conspiracy with four other police officials, chief metropolitan magistrate Vinod Yadav said, "Being at the helm of affairs in their respective departments, the officials abused their position to frame inspector K G Tyagi and two police officers in corruption case."
An FIR was registered against Tyagi in 2008 for allegedly extorting R26 lakh from one Abhinav Aggarwal in lieu of making a criminal case registered against his father weak in court.
Aggarwal had carried out a sting operation and handed over the CD to the anti-corruption department.
The court noted that Tyagi on February 13, 2009, filed a complaint in the office of Director Vigilance, NCT government, stating his frame-up in the corruption case.
In November 2010, Tyagi, who was suspended by then, again filed a complaint in court naming N Dilip Kumar, joint commissioner of police (anti-corruption), special commissioner of police (vigilance), retired assistant commissioner of police (ACP) HPS Sodhi, two ACPs KR Meena and Hira Lal, two inspectors Virender Kadyan and YS Negi and senior scientific officer, central forensic science laboratory (CFSL), D Venkateshwar as accused.
The court noted that Kumar and Shukla did not verify the CD and manufactured evidence to file a false case against Tyagi and two other police officers.
The judge said, "Kumar, in collusion Venkateshwar, forged the CFSL report of the CD, which was concluded without examining the instrument used to make the sting operation CD."
The judge said, "Tyagi's first complaint is still pending in the vigilance office. If top officials are involved in corruption, then who will investigate the matter?"
The court ordered that the present FIR would be investigated by an officer of Delhi police special cell. The court directed police to file a report on January 10.
