Ex-Delhi Police DCP convicted in disproportionate assets case
A former Deputy Commissioner of Delhi Police was on Thursday held guilty by a special court for amassing assets worth over Rs 10 lakh disproportionate to his known sources of income in a 2001 case.
Special CBI Judge Anju Bajaj Chandna convicted Bhupinder Singh Bola, an IPS officer, and fixed the next hearing of arguments on the quantum of sentence on Friday.
“Accused BS Bola is convicted for the offence punishable under Section 13(2) (criminal misconduct by public servant) read with 13(1)(e) (possession of disproportionate assets by public servant) of Prevention of Corruption (PC) Act. Put up on October 7, 2016, for arguments and order on the point of sentence,” the court said.
According to the CBI, searches were conducted at Bola’s Delhi residence on July 6, 2001, when he was posted as the MD of Pondicherry Distilleries and assets worth Rs 10,07,850 were found, including clothes worth Rs 2,38,600.
He failed to explain the source of the recovered assets, it claimed. A charge sheet was filed by the CBI under the provisions of PC Act.
