Gurgaon:

Bhupani police station SHO Abdul Sahid had taken the help of a woman to lay a trap and make a video of her with Faridabad deputy police commissioner Vikram Kapoor, after which the inspector started blackmailing him, sources told TOI.


Sources told TOI that the SHO had taken the help of a woman to lay a trap and make a video of her with the DCP, after which he started blackmailing him. “The SHO used one of his woman friends to make a video. He was demanding Rs 2 crore from the DCP, who was unable to arrange such the amount. He pleaded but Sahid would abuse him over the phone,” said a source privy to the case.

To put more pressure, said sources, Sahid also influenced Satish Malik, a local reporter with Mazdoor Morcha who is now absconding, to run a couple of articles two months ago making certain accusations against the DCP. One of the stories alleged that Kapoor had close links with the liquor mafia. Faridabad police spokesperson Sube Singh did not elaborate on why the DCP was being blackmailed. “The case is related to a senior police officer, so a special investigation team (SIT) has been formed and they are probing the case,” he said.

The SIT, led by ACP (crime) Anil Yadav, comprises Sector 30 inspector in-charge Vimal Rai, sub-inspector Ravinder Kumar and sub-inspector Satish Kumar.

A ‘tainted’ past?

Police sources told TOI that the SHO and the local journalist are not new to controversy. Sahid joined the police force 20 years ago as a sipahi, a rank below constable. His father used to work at the home of an IPS officer who, on persistent requests from the former, helped Sahid secure a job in Haryana police. “Sahid worked with the traffic department for some time during which he allegedly made a lot of money from corrupt means. In 20 years of service, a sipahi can become ASI or at most, SI, with an extraordinary service record. But he got promoted out of the turn to become inspector and was posted as SHO,” said a senior police officer, not wishing to be named. He added that the SHO was infamous for getting his work done with the “patronage of a senior IPS officer” and also amassed disproportionate assets. In 2012, said the officer, when Sahid was ASI in the crime branch, he had tampered with the investigation of a narcotics case and the then inspector-general of Faridabad had recommended his termination from the police force on corruption charges. However, Sahid not only managed to save his job, but continued to get promoted.

Malik, who single-handedly runs his newspaper, was arrested in 2003 in connection with the murder of an ASI. A few years ago, he was also booked in a cheating case. Vijay Kaushik, a Faridabad resident and former journalist who had filed the cheating case against Malik, demanded that the probe into the DCP’s suicide should be handed over to a central agency.

“Their (Sahid’s and Malik’s) past record is not very good,” said Faridabad police PRO Sube Singh
