DCP Sunil Bhardwaj
DCP Sunil Bhardwaj : This officer means business.

Bhagyashree Phodkar

NEWLY appointed deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Sunil Bhardwaj alias Lohar is the talk of Ulhasnagar for adopting a novel method to collect the monthly hafta, a system never seen before in the history of the state police department. Bhardwaj allegedly called for tenders for monthly hafta collection. A constable from Thane emerged victorious in the bidding and deposited Rs 50 lakh in cash before diligently settling down to his new job. Last month Sunil Bhardwaj was appointed as DCP Ulhasnagar. Earlier he was in Thane police headquarters. He replaced Vasant Jadhav.

There is a tradition in the police department that after taking charge of new posting the DCP, ACP and Sr Inspector raid various establishments. What it really means is that the officer wants his hafta to continue in the new area. But Bhardwaj is two steps ahead. After taking up the DCP chair, Bhardwaj interviewed many constables and asked them to collect hafta for him. Bhardwaj put a proposal (tender) before them that a constable will be eligible if he deposits Rs 50 lakh in advance. Bhardwaj said that he has bought this (DCP Ulhasnagar) chair for Rs 1 crore. He has paid Rs 50,00,000 but remaining Rs 50,00,000 he wants from his hafta “collector.” He put up another proposal that he will take four times more than previous DCP Vasant Jadhav; if Vasant Jadhav was taking Rs 25,000 from one establishment he will take Rs 1,25,000. Ulhasnagar citizens knew that Vasant Jadhav was very corrupt officer. Jadhav has tried to extort double through Constable Ramdas Misal, his ‘collection agent’, but failed.

Bhardwaj interviewed Constable Ramdas Misal also. Misal is an expert in collecting hafta from establishments. A source said that Misal has partnership in three orchestra bars, of five paisa each.

Misal refused the proposal stating he cannot collect four times more than Vasant Jadhav. He was also not ready to deposit Rs 50 lakh in advance. No constable accepted Bhardwaj’s proposal. Finally he appointed Shyam Patil for this job. Shyam Patil is a constable and was attached with Thane police headquarters. He is on good terms with Bhardwaj. Sources said Shyam Patil immediate deposited Rs 25 lakh and promised to deposit remaining Rs 25 lakh very soon.

After taking charge of new task, Shyam Patil sent a message to all orchestra bars, illegal beer bars, lodges, video game centres, internet game centres, social clubs, matka operators and ganja smugglers to pay four times more monthly hafta to new DCP. Chaos spread among businessmen. They refused to pay four times more. Angry Bhardwaj started raiding orchestra bars and registering FIRs. The action is continuing.

Rates:
There are around 8 orchestra bars, 125 beer bars and 25 lodges in Ulhasnagar city. These establishments pay Rs 60,000 to senior inspectors, Rs 25,000 to ACP and Rs 30,000 to DCP honestly and regularly.

From Lohar to Bhardwaj : 
Three brothers—Manoj Lohar, Sunil Lohar and Nitin Lohar—are sons of former IPS officer P T Lohar. Manoj, Sunil and Nitin were recruited as deputy superintendents of police (Dy SP) following an examination conducted by the Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPSC) in 1997. These Lohar brothers had conspired and tampered with the examination process and had produced fake caste certificates. Then home minister R R Patil had sacked these three Lohar brothers for allegedly using unfair means to get themselves elected as Dy SP. To hide identity, Sunil Bhardwaj changed his surname from Lohar to Bhardwaj .

If this is true and there is some sound evidence to prove it, why doesn’t the reporter complain in writing to Enforcement Directorate, Income Tax authorities and Vigilance dept., ACB etc. ?

On the other hand, if it’s false, why doesn’t the accused officer file a defamation case against him / her?

One thing is clear though. The highest authorities in the home department must start an inquiry in this matter, since the allegations are very serious and committed in writing at a public forum online.

It is so disgusting to read… These 3 brothers’ style to enter in the state service itself was very very doubtful during those days. Many deserving and hard working candidates were deprived of selection only because of the then most corrupt members of MPSC – KARNIK & SAYLI JOSHI. They finally escaped.. These Lohar brothers were also suspended, chargesheeted, but eventually saved. May be this reporter’s information was biased, but where there is smoke, there is fire I believe,

DCP भारद्वाज तुम्ही कारवाई सुरूच ठेवा… उल्हासनगरमधल्या अवैध धंद्याविरोधात कारवाईचा बडगा उगारल्यामुळे नवनियुक्त DCP सुनील भारद्वाज सध्या चर्चेत आहेत. पदभार स्वीकारल्यापासून त्यांनी अनेक अवैध ऑर्केस्ट्राबार, वेश्याव्यवसाय चालविणारे लॉज यांच्यावर धाडी टाकत धडक कारवाई केली. एवढेच नव्हेतर उल्हासनगरच्या इतिहासात प्रथमच हॉेटल तिल्सन सारख्या बारवर धाड टाकत १७ मुलीचीं सुटका केली. अशा कारवाईकरिता त्यांनी हाताखालच्या सर्वच कर्मचाऱ्यांना नवी उमेद आणि विश्वास दिला, ज्यांनी अडथळे आणायचा प्रयत्न केला त्यांना नोटिसा, मेमो जारी केले. कोणत्याही स्थितीत DCP भारद्वाज बधणार नाहीत हे लक्षात आल्यानंतर मग कारवाईने त्रस्त लोकांनी आता त्यांच्या बदनामीचे षडयंत्र सुरू केले आहे. त्यांच्या विरोधातल्या बातम्यांची पेरणी हा याच बदनामीच्या षडयंत्राचा भाग आहे.… Read more »

If its true, Proving part remains. 2) Does the publisher have those incriminating evidence against these officer’s he is incriminating if yes then Good… Read more »
