Court issues arrest warrant against suspended IPS



Shimla: A Himachal Pradesh court on Thursday issued arrest warrant against suspended Indian Police Service (IPS) officer K.K. Indoria.

Additional Director General of Police K.C. Sadyal said here that Sessions Court of Kullu has ordered the arrest of Indoria in a graft case registered by the State Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau. “This is a first step to declare an accused a proclaimed offender,” he added. K.K. Indoria was facing charges of corruption and benefiting from Allain Duhangan Hydropower Ltd. during his tenure as superintendent of police in Kullu district from 2009 to 2010.

He was on March 1 granted anticipatory bail by the Himachal Pradesh High Court, following which he joined police investigations. His anticipatory bail expired on March 10th and he has been absconding since the Supreme Court rejected his bail plea almost a month ago. The state government suspended him on April 14. A Kullu court yesterday pleaded by state Vigilance and Anti-Corruption Bureau to declare absconding AIG (Police) K K Indoria, a proclaimed offender.

After the rejection of bail plea of Indoria by the Supreme Court in a bribe case, Vigilance Bureau was expecting him to surrender, but he evaded arrest and was absconding. The Vigilance Bureau finally decided to complete the formalities for declaring him a proclaimed offender to thwart any attempt by the accused to flee the country. The vigilance department had earlier alerted the airports and sent his photographs to airport authorities at several places. The agency was hopeful that after being declared a proclaimed offender, Indoria would be under pressure and with no escape routes available, he might surrender.
