Nagpur: One would come across many incidents where many highly connected people, leaders from political parties or others with good connection with cops getting away with some or the other crime.
On the other hand on many occasions, the cops are known to have shielded the real offenders and made some small fry as offenders. On many occasions, the cops have let go the real offenders for monetary benefits.
A similar incident occurred in seizure of Ganja from a car that met with a road mishap on Chikhli (Maina) on Katol-Sawargaon road on September 5, 2016.
According to reliable sources, there were four passengers in the car carrying a stash of Ganja. However, the cops arrested only two of the accused passengers.
While questioning too the two accused had named four people as passengers travelling in the car, yet the cops have registered the offence against only two accused for reasons best known to them.
A leader of a political party told Nagpur Today on condition of anonymity that there is a CCTV installed on a restaurant hit opposite to the spot where the road mishap occurred. If the cops view the CCTV footage, it will reveal how many people were seated inside the car that met with an accident. The footage will also reveal if the two accused had removed some part of the Ganja that they were transporting in the car.
No check of goods on borders
Surprisingly, there is no sort of checking being carried out on the check-post at the borders. This is said to be true in Madhya Pradesh-Maharashtra border. The leader of a political party also informed Nagpur Today that contrabands and weapons are illegally smuggled into Nagpur without any hindrance or check at the borders. He said that there is a significant amount of contraband including drugs like Ganja, Heroine and weapons like country-made pistols etc being smuggled into the city through trucks travelling late in the night.
