no leniency on corruption cases: CBI court pronounces 4-year jail to Govt doctor in bribery case
Chandigarh: Holding that no leniency will be shown in the cases of corruption, Dr Sushil Kumar Garg, the special judge for CBI court, Chandigarh has ordered four years of rigorous imprisonment to a former medical officer of the district jail Ropar who was convicted in a bribery case.
The court has also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on the doctor. The medical officer was arrested in 2014 in a case of corruption after a complainant alleged that he took a bribe of Rs 4000 from her to refer her son to PGI, Chandigarh.
" The accused doctor was working as a medical officer in the District Jail, Ropar. He had received illegal gratification of Rs 4000 for referring the complainant's son to the PGI. Therefore, while imposing a sentence to the convict in this type of corruption case, the court should not show leniency. When such a medical officer does not act with integrity, the entire society will suffer. Corruption deserves no sympathy and leniency."
