Ex-cop gets 3 years in jail in graft case

delhi Updated: Oct 03, 2011 00:37 IST

A former police officer has been given a three-year jail term by the Delhi high court for demanding a monthly bribe of Rs 10,000 from a businessman in 1995.

Upholding the trial court's conviction order against Satish Chandra, posted as sub-inspector at Vasant Kunj police station at the time of the incident, the court dismissed his appeal and directed to take him to custody forthwith.

“I am of the view that the appeal is without merit and hence, consequently deserves to be dismissed... Resultantly, the accused shall be taken into custody forthwith," the court said, while rejecting the judgements cited by Chandra to defend himself in the case.
