Cops penalised for submitting bogus bills for reimbursement
Five police personnel faced departmental action after it was revealed that they had submitted bogus medical papers and bills to claim medical reimbursement in December 2016. The punishment order was issued in July.
In December 2016, the reimbursement desk of the Mumbai Police found discrepancies in the claims made by the five police personnel. The same month, a departmental inquiry against the five revealed that the medical documents submitted by them for reimbursements were bogus and found them guilty.
