Sending a strong warning to the government employees involved in corruption, the Delhi High Court said “leniency or sympathy” should not be shown to such officials.

Rejecting a petition challenging the Labour Court’s order which upheld the dismissal of a DTC bus conductor from the service in 2000 for pocketing Rs 24, the court said, “No leniency or sympathy can be shown to a person who indulges himself in corruption even at a small level and by all means, corruption has to be checked and nipped in the bud.”
