New Delhi: A Delhi court has granted bail to Naresh Chander, the former Delhi Police SHO of Jahangirpuri police station, and three other cops who are facing prosecution for allegedly stealing money recovered during a raid, post demonitisation.

Naresh through his counsel Pradep Rana had moved the bail application before the court of additional sessions judge Bimla Kumari. Mr Rana in his argument claimed that the complainant was in the habit of making false complaints.

“The complainant only wanted to extort money from my clients. She has lodged fake cases in the recent past,” Mr Rana said, demanding bail.

After hearing both sides, the court granted bail to the cops. It granted bail to Naresh Chander, constables Rajesh, Shri Baghwan and one other cop. They had to furnish a bail bond of Rs 10,000 with a surety of like amount.  

According to the prosecution, one Ashmina Sheikh, a Jahangirpuri local who runs a betel shop, lodged a case against the four cops, alleging they stole money recovered  during a raid post demonetisation. She alleged that one Shaifudin alias Titu, a garbage collector, had found scrapped currency, amounting to Rs 1 crore, from the garbage on November 11.

She informed the cops about it and they conducted a raid at Titu’s house and recovered the cash from him. She alleged that the cops did not lodge any case in this respect, and instead, took the money.
