Playing with the lives of those for whom acquiring life protecting devices were required to be arranged , hoax and duplicity with intent to make illegal pecuniary gains worth crores of rupees, were reportedly resorted to in State Police Department. The scam has surfaced which is unprecedented in its structure and in its form, involving purchase of bullet proof vests, headgears and bullet proof covering of gypsies, thus brazenly compromising with the protection cover to security personnel from bullets.
This fraud of suspected wide range warrants a probe of higher level and complete unearthing of all the nuts and bolts of conspiracy, planning, modus operandi and other relevant pieces of evidence including illegal money trails which made this scam possible. It is reported that the purchases of over Rs. 100 crore were made by the Police Headquarters for the Jammu and Kashmir Police during the last fiscal and intentionally and knowingly, sub- standard purchases were made of these life saving devices and bullet proof covering of gypsies, thus criminally imperiling the lives of the Police personnel , those who usually are at the forefront of fighting armed terrorism in the State.
To put dust into the eyes of the people whose tax money is it all about, what was initially selected by the Purchase Committee symbolically – a sample of proper specification, later turned out to be something else thus compromising on the security and protection aspects. There are various questions arising which need cogent replies without resorting to any alibis. The questions pertain to all the stages of the process of such purchases right from sanction to surfacing of the fraud.
