A DIVISION Bench of the high court here on Wednesday dismissed a writ petition filed by retired sub-inspector of police (SI) Surya Mani Tewari seeking stay on his arrest in a cheating case.
The Bench, comprising Justice Bhanwar Singh and Justice Jagmohan Paliwal, further passed orders for lodging FIR against another SI Ram Shiromani Singh, who was also found involved in the cheating case. The investigation has been entrusted to the CB/CID.
Retired SI Tewari had hatched a plan to cheat one Jamil Ahmad in connivance with a serving SI. Singh duped Jamil into paying Rs 1.90 lakh on the pretext that a case of rape had been lodged against the latter and the money would help to set things right. In the process, Singh got Rs 1.50 lakh while Tewari bagged Rs 40,000 from Jamil. Both the SIs gave ‘papers’ to Jamil stating that the case had been set right.
The victim later came to know that both the SIs had concocted the rape story to extract money from him. Jamil then lodged a complaint with the SSP, Faizabad against the two SIs. The SSP Faizabad had directed the SO Chowk, Faizabad, to recover the money and lodge an FIR against retired SI Tewari, while letting the serving cop to go scot-free. Tewari had move court to seek stay on his arrest. While dismissing the plea, the court ordered lodging of an FIR against Singh and investigating the case through CB/CID.
