Chhattisgarh cops arrest IPS officer Gurjinder Pal Singh charged with corruption and sedition – ET Government : Shivpurinews.in

The Chhattisgarh Anti-Corruption Bureau on Tuesday arrested in Delhi ADG Gurjinder Pal Singh, a 1994-batch IPS officer, who is under suspension and has been charged with corruption, sedition and promoting enmity.The Supreme Court had recently turned down his plea for a stay on his arrest and the investigation.

He was suspended last July following ACB and EOW raids on his residence and other premises. Singh had earlier headed the same agencies. Assets worth Rs 10 crore and Rs 16 lakh in cash were recovered, along with several documents, the agencies had said.

On July 10, less than a week after the anti-corruption raid, the IPS officer was booked on charges of sedition as well.The FIR was filed at Raipur Kotwali police station around midnight under IPC 124A (sedition) and 153A (promoting enmity).

Police didn’t make a copy of the FIR public, saying it’s a sensitive case. Later, CM Bhupesh Baghel said the sedition case and the other charges were registered based on documents seized by the ACB. A minister hinted at a “conspiracy to destabilise the government”. Singh then moved the high court alleging that he was being victimized but got no relief.
