Baliram Shinde, office superintendent at Maharashtra Director- General of Police’s office, who was arrested on Monday for demanding a bribe, took kickbacks from police personnel while sanctioning loans to them, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) officers said. The ACB seized Rs 75.2 lakh from Shinde’s residence in Sanpada, Navi Mumbai, soon after he was arrested for allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs 22,000 and accepting Rs 10,000 from a policeman. “As per his current salary, Shinde’s earnings in his lifetime would not cross Rs 40 lakh.
He has no justification for being in possession of Rs 75.2 lakh and has already confessed to the crime,” said Vishwas Nangre-Patil, Additional Commissioner of Police, ACB. Nangre-Patil said the ACB was preparing charts of Shinde’s income, expenditure and assets accumulated in his over two-decade long career. “We have written to all offices where Shinde was previously employed to get details of his salary,” he said. “We have given Shinde a few weeks to explain the source of his wealth. We are also examining the finances of his family members to understand who owned what assets,” said N Misal, Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACB. ens
