Absconding IPS Arvind Sen.
IPS Arvind Sen’s application rejected
The plea seeking recall of the arrest warrant issued against the wanted senior IPS officer Arvind Sen has been rejected by the Special Court of Prevention of Corruption Act. On December 10, Special Judge Sandeep Gupta ordered the issuance of a non-bailable warrant against Arvind Sen on the plea of Shweta Srivastava, Gomtinagar, the Vigilance and Additional Commissioner of Police.
On Monday, a special court applied for the recall of the non-bailable warrant by Arvind Sen. Saying that his anticipatory bail petition in this case is under trial in the High Court. In such a situation, his arrest during this period will make the anticipatory bail petition baseless. Hence the non-bailable warrant issued against him should be recalled.
Poll was open two years ago
In 2018, the livestock scam was exposed when Indore-based businessman Manjit Singh Bhatia filed a case in Hazrat Ganj Kotwali, Lucknow. The victim had alleged that a proposal of three per cent commission was received in lieu of tender of Rs 214 crore in the livestock department. On which one crore rupees were paid as commission. It is alleged that he was called again on 31 August and Ashish Rai called him SK Mittal at the government office of the Animal Husbandry Department’s Assembly Secretariat and met him with a copy of the fake work order. Then many times crores of rupees were collected from him.
