High Court Reserves Order Over IAS Officer’s Plea Seeking Anticipatory Bail On ‘graft’ Charges

Panchkula, May 24: The Punjab and Haryana High Court reserved the order over the petition filed by an IAS officer of Haryana seeking anticipatory bail in a corruption case registered by state Anti Corruption Bureau at Panchkula.

The petitioner Vijay Dahiya stated in his petition that he was posted as Commissioner, Haryana Skill Development Department at Panchkula, adding that the FIR under the provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act and Section 384 and 120 of the IPC was registered on the complaint of Rinku Manchanda, running an education institution.

It was further submitted that bills of Rs 50,00,000, due to be paid to the complainant, were pending with the Department of Skill Development for the last three years.

It was alleged that the complainant approached a co-accused, who allegedly referred her to another co-accused Poonam Chopra & the Bureau laid a trap and she was apprehended.

The purported bribe amount of Rs 3,00,000 was allegedly recovered from her. 

Dahiya submitted before the HC that he has been implicated merely for the reason that he is known to co-accused Poonam Chopra and by manipulating this acquaintance, the prosecution attempted to concoct a story that he petitioner is also an accused in the case.

After hearing the matter, Justice Gurvinder Singh Gill reserved the order in the matter.
