Local Geology & Mining Employee Demanding Bribe from Tipper Drivers & Crusher owners.
At a time when the whole world is fighting the COVID pandemic as the lockdown has broken the backbone of common people due to financial crisis. At the same time the employees of geology mining are demanding bribe from Tipper Drivers for ferrying the building material like gravel , sand and rocks.
It is pertinent to mention that the concerned department has issued a blanket ban on working of Stone Crushers but the officials who are working hand in glove with owner of these plants let them work in lieu of huge amount of money.
Same incident happened in Khrew area of Pampore tehsil where a local employee Bashir Ahmad Sheikh demanded bribe of 5000Rs from the Tipper Drivers but when the said driver refused he seized the vehicle and imposed a fine of 28,000 on him. The incident has shocked the local drivers as other driver who pay weekly bribe to him are allowed to ferry material without any interruption.
Sunday evening is a self evident of rampant corruption by him. The said employee in the video threatens drivers to contact concern DC and DMO as he is not afraid of anyone.
The driver whose vehicle was seized told CNS that he will go on hunger strike if investigation wasn’t launched against mentioned employee and he added that there can’t be two laws one for the poor and other for the rich.
