Raj Singh ASI Gurgaon was booked on Friday on charges of corruption and amassing illegal assets worth Rs 4 crore.

The ASI, who is identified as 50-year-old Raj Singh and is currently posted at the Gurgaon civil court, has been booked under charges of corruption.

“We have received several complaints against Singh for his alleged involvement in illegal and corrupt activities.

“Therefore, we have constituted a team headed by an ACP rank officer to investigate his illegal activities.
“It has been revealed during investigation that his movable and immovable properties are 20 times higher than his actual income,” Gurgaon Police Commissioner Navdeep Singh Virk said.

“At the order of police commissioner’s we carried out this search operation and found that apart from their multi-storey mansion in Sector 40, Singh and his wife Santosh own a car showroom, a multi-storey paying guesthouse and a 240 square-yard plot in Wazirabad. They also have several bank accounts in their name,” said an officer who was part of the investigation team.

“We have calculated his income according to his service period and compared it to his assets, which are much higher.

“On that basis, we have registered an FIR against him and his wife under the Prevention of Corruption Act,” Virk said.

Interestingly, this is not the first time Singh has been accused of graft. Last year, he was transferred to police lines after he had come under the scanner of the Gurgaon Police after a 1 minute 28 second video clip captured the cop taking bribe from dumper drivers in May and he is still facing probe for the same.
