Rajasthan: The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in Rajasthan on Friday i.e. Jan 06 withdrew its controversial order issued two days ago to conceal the identity of government officials accused in corruption cases till they are proven in court.
Let us tell you that 2 days ago i.e. Jan 04 ACB's acting ADG Hemant Priyadarshy issued a controversial order. ADG Hemant Priyadarshy had issued orders not to reveal the identity of the bribe takers.
There was a lot of ruckus after this order of ADG Hemant Priyadarshy. The BJP targeted the Gehlot government. BJP state president Satish Poonia had alleged that the Gehlot government is trying to save corrupt officers.
There was widespread condemnation of this order. Congress minister Pratap Singh Khachariawas also opposed this order and said that such an order has been issued to spoil the work of four years. This will not be tolerated.
Rajasthan ACB chief Hemant Priyadarshy had issued orders not to make public the name of the bribe taker who gets trapped till they are proved in court.
By issuing the order, the name of the bribe takers will not be issued in the official information issued from the Rajasthan ACB headquarters, nor will the instructions to issue photos and video lamps.
It is the responsibility of the Trapper Officer/Research Officer to ensure the safety and human rights of any suspect or accused in the custody of the Bureau.
After the order was issued, the BJP accused the Congress of trying to shield bribe takers. Leader of Opposition Gulab Chand Kataria said that this order of ACB ADG is not valid in any form.
If the name of the bribe-takers is not made public then there will be no fear among the bribe-takers. The fear of going on the wrong path and being exposed is what keeps a person from committing a crime.
