JAMMU: The State Vigilance Organisation (SVO) on Friday caught Tehsildar Kishtwar red handed while demanding and accepting bribe for issuance of an Income certificate.
On the basis of a written complaint lodged by complainant Farooq Ahmed Kripak, a resident of village Keshwan Kishtwar, FIR 40/2017 under section 5(1) (d) read with section 5(2) of J&K P.C Act and section 4-A P.C Act (Amendment-2014) was registered against Irshad Ahmed Butt, Tehsildar Kishtwar .
The complainant alleged that he approached Patwari Halqa Keshwan for processing the RBA certificates of his wards for which Patwari Halqa Keshwan demanded Rs 5000 from him, but he denied to pay him.
Accordingly, Patwari Halqa concerned prepared the income certificate of complainant of Rs 40,000 per annum which is very much higher than his actual income. The complainant approached Tehsildar Kishtwar namely Irshad Ahmed Butt for re-verifying his income. The Tehsildar concerned after verification had prepared his (complainant) actual income, but on this pretext the Tehsildar Kishtwar Irshad Ahmed Butt demanded Rs.7000 from him.
The complainant requested for legal action against the corrupt officer. Accordingly, on the basis of the said complaint, a trap was laid by the SVO sleuths led by DySP Kartar Singh Kotwal against the said Tehsildar and he was caught red handed while demanding and accepting Rs 7000 as illegal gratification from the complainant.
After completing all necessary formalities Tehsildar was arrested for further legal action. Further investigation of the case is going on.
