THE Jalna unit of Anti – Corruption Bureau (ACB) arrested the traffic police inspector of Jalna for demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs. 13,000.
The complainant’s brother Akbar owns a truck (MH 06 K 5154) which is driven by Abdul Rahim Abdul Razzak. On April 24, 2014 the driver Abdul was on Dongaon – Beed – Aurangabad road where he was stopped by Ghanshyam Rambhau Palvade, the district traffic police inspector. Palvade gave the driver a receipt and confiscated the truck taking it to Pachod Police Station.
The complainant approached Palvade at Dongaon, Sirgaon to strike a conversation so as to why was the truck confiscated. Palvade asked the complainant to pay him a fine of Rs. 6,200 which was mentioned on the receipt that Palwade gave the driver; along with it he also asked the complainant to pay him an additional amount of Rs. 20,000 per month if he wanted to transport Sand or else his truck would be confiscated every month in the similar manner. The complainant said Rs 20,000 was a very big amount for him and pleaded Palvade to reduce the amount after which he agreed on Rs. 18,000 per month. Palvade also told the complainant to get Yusuf Bhai along when he visits him the next time or to make him talk to Ysusf Bahi over the phone.
The complainant on April 23, 2014 approached the Jalna unit of ACB to register a complaint against Palvade. The complainant had carried along with him the copies of the receipt given by Palvade to the driver and RC book of the truck. On April 23, 2014 Palvade had asked the complainant to give him the bribe amount so the ACB set a trap to arrest him. As decided the complainant met Palvade near Raje Shambhaji Dhaba on Aurangabad – Pachod road where he was arrested by ACB, Jalna accepting the bribe amount of Rs. 13,000.
Earlier, in 1998 an investigation was also carried against Palvade at the Vani Police Station, Yavatmal. The investigation in the matter is on by the ACB and a case has been registered against Palvade for accepting bribe.
