Head constable in Mansa honoured for refusing bribe

Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Traffic Amardeep Singh Rai on Thursday has conferred a Commendation Certification (Class-1) to a Head Constable (HC) Gurpreet Singh posted in traffic wing of Mansa district Police for turning down a bribe offered by a traffic violator.

Notably, a video of a HC Gurpreet Singh in which he was seen refusing a bribe offer of Rs 200 in lieu of exempting a traffic violator from a challan went viral on social media. “Janab, make a video (of traffic violator), see he is offering me Rs 200 as a bribe. We will send this video to CM Bhagwant Mann’s group to show him how people are forcibly offering a bribe to the police,” Gurpreet was seen telling this to his senior as he turned down the bribe offer.
