Gurugram, December 7

While IPS Dheeraj Setia reportedly avoided joining the investigation into a multi-million dollar burglary, the STF raided his house only to find him and his family unavailable.

Setia emerged as one of the suspects in the case and was advised to join the investigation.

While he was supposed to show up today, he didn’t and was given a notice again. Speaking to The Tribune, IG, STF, Mamta Singh said a second notice was served today evening and a new investigation was underway.

“Our team is investigating. As IPS Dheeraj Setia’s name appeared in the confession of one of the accused, Dr Sachender Kumar Nawal, we served Setia with a notice to participate in the investigation, but it was unsuccessful. A second notice has also been served and if he does not join the investigation, action will be taken according to the law, ”said Mamta Singh.

One of the defendants, pediatrician Dr Sachender Kumar Nawal, claimed in his confession statement that he paid Setia in cash and in kind in excess of Rs 2 crore to cover the breakages.

This money which he confessed was even returned to him. This statement has put Setia under the scanner and STF is looking to verify the same after Extra Sessions Judge Jasbir Singh pointed out inaction.

“From the disclosure statement of the accused Dr Sachender Kumar Nawal, it is clear that he gave an illegal gratuity to DCP Dheeraj Setia for hushing up the case. He (Nawal) also revealed that he delivered a huge amount in the form of gold, dollars, etc. to DCP for this purpose. On reading the police file, I did not find any concrete measures taken to bring the investigation to its logical conclusion, ”the court observed on December 2.

STF investigating a multi-crore theft case that started as a theft from an apartment in Sector 84 has turned into a multi-crore heist including who’s who in town.

Numerous high-level police officers are also under the scanner and a total of 11 defendants including medics, Delhi Police ASI and thugs of gangster Vikas Lagarpuria have been arrested so far.
