File case against senior cops: Court directs police

Bulandshahr: The Chief Judicial Magistrate here has ordered senior officers to register a case against four policemen, including a SP, for allegedly misappropriating assets of a former Block Pramukh while arresting him under the National Security Act.

CJM Rajesh Chaudhry has asked the officers to register the case against SP (Rural) Babu Ram, Police Inspector Alok Singh and two others for allegedly usurping Rs 11 lakhs in cash and a car while they were arresting former Block Pramukh Vinod Rao on December 22, 2010 under the National Security Act.

Geeta, Rao's wife, has claimed of having mobile recordings of her conversations with Inspector Alok Singh in which he has admitted of having the money and car with him.
