CBI special judge, Vimal Kumar, on Monday, issued bailable warrants against Rajasthan’s IPS officer Vipul Chaturvedi for failing to appear before the court in connection to a bribery case against four Rajasthan Police officials.


Chaturvedi had been ordered to appear before the court on September 15. The CBI had arrested four officials of the Rajasthan Police (posted in Sirohi district of the state) on charges of taking a bribe from a city-based liquor contractor in 2010.

According to the CBI, Chaturvedi was the authority who sanctioned the accused-sub-inspector Bharat Kumar, head constable Shakeel Mohammed and constables Khambe Ram and Ashwini Kumar.

The accused were arrested on May 21, 2010 from a Sector-32 liquor vend while accepting a bribe of ` 25,000 from the vend contractor Praveen Chugh.

A truck full of liquor from his vend had been impounded by the Rajasthan Police and the driver booked in a case there.

The accused cops then struck a deal with the liquor vend contractor to save him from a case.
