Upwards of 13 cops other than a police sub assessor – all from the same police post – were connected on Friday to the store police line here. Disciplinary move was made against them by the director of police after a circle officer (CO) discovered some of them taking a fix from the drivers of over-burden rice husk trucks. The CO, on the order of the DIG, went alongside the truckers in the night hours sitting in an over-burden truck to test the matter. The truckers had griped against the cops concerned, affirming that they were running a system for gathering rewards through procured men.

The blundering cops, incorporate the in control officer of the police post, Pramod Kumar, one ASI and 12 constables, he included.
