Jammu, Sept 19: In an interesting development, an Indian Police Services (IPS) Officer, who had an image of an honest officer among his colleagues, has finally succumbed for an Apple I-Phone, allegedly to patronise SHO. According to police sources, the IPS officer had an image of honest officer among his colleagues and his self praise was the prime factor for it, as he used to project himself as an officer of sheer integrity.
"The officer sold his dignity for mere a mobile phone, which he accepted from an Inspector who was posted as Station house Officer (SHO)," said sources, adding that the IPS officer patronised the SHO by not relieving him.
Sources maintained that earlier most of the Inspectors were shifted to different ranges and an Inspector who was posted as SHO in a police station requested the IPS officer not to relieve him, for which he reportedly gifted him high end Apple I-Phone.
"The IPS officer accepted the I-Phone from SHO and ensured that he will not be relieved from the present posting," said a police officer pleading anonymity, adding that for some time the IPS did as he had promised, but the fancy of I-Phone could not hold him for long.
Police officer further asserted that the IPS officer was soon bored with the I-Phone, thus he broke his promise and relieved the SHO. "One the one hand police always claim to deliver transparency in all police-public meetings and on the other hand the IPS officer sold his dignity just for I-Phone", said another IPS officer adding that such IPS officer bring shame for the entire fraternity.
