Jammu, February 02: If sources are to be believed, the DIG, Home Guards, Basant Rath who is famous in Jammu for allegations of misuse of power, inept handling of cases and display of ‘arrogance’ is presently working on getting a posting in Jammu range.
According to the reports by a local daily, Basant Rath’s career has remained full of controversies but even in the midst of controversies, he was given some important postings by the government. He was posted as an additional SP, Jammu rural, at Domana when a cop had opened fire and killed a minor boy, who was sitting on the pillion seat of a motorcycle injuring his cousin, an army jawan.
Furthermore, Rath is said to have a backing of a Congress minister and even the Director General of Police.
“In case he gets posted as DIG, Jammu, he is likely to again create some sort of controversies which may not be good for the people of Jammu,” sources asserted.
