Nagpur: Nagpur Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar has constituted a special investigation team consisting of Crime Branch, Economic Offenses Wing and Cyber Cell officials to investigate the allegation of cash for transfers in the regional transport office department.
Nagpur Police Commissioner Amitesh Kumar has said about this that a retired Mumbai regional transport office was in the city recently and many officers of the department from all over Vidarbha have met him to request for transfers. And the footage of eight CCTV cameras of a hotel on Central Bazar Road has been scanned.
Sources have told about this that on the date of March 8, the retired officer from Mumbai had checked in at a posh hotel in Ramdaspeth area. And he stayed there for a day on the third floor of the hotel where many serving officers of the department met him. It was also alleged that the former officer also had close links with the state transport ministry and helped officials of the department get desired postings.
Calling the regional transport office officials for discussion
