CP stalls transfer of cop in gold seizure enquiry

NAGPUR: Police chief BK Upadhyay has stayed the switch of a constable, under scanner within the alleged 4.5kg gold seizure case, to a plum posting on the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) mobile of crime department on Friday.
The constable was once concerned within the rumoured seizure of 4.50kg unaccounted gold on December three, which is not on the file nor confirmed by means of any source. The gold apparently belonged to a Itwari-based bullion trader, and was once being transported with out documents to keep away from taxes.

One of the constables concerned within the alleged seizure was once then transferred to crime department. The constable had come from NDPS mobile of crime department to Tehsil police station, and was once being shifted again to the same unit together with two others, said sources.


The switch came even while Zonal DCP Rahul Maknikar was once enquiring into the gold seizure. Maknikar too didn't know concerning the switch or that the cop was once connected to the seizure. Maknikar said he had questioned some police officers from Tehsil police station but not the cop in query.


“I summoned some of the bullion traders twice, but he said no gold had been seized by means of Tehsil police or bought by means of him or someone,” he said. “I will publish my report back to the police chief,” said the DCP.


DCP, crime, Sambhaji Kadam, said oral directions have already been issued by means of the highest brass cancelling the transfers. He, on the other hand, claimed the switch order and it’s cancellation was once due to administrative causes.
