Punjab IAS officer Sanjay Popli booked under Arms Act

Chandigarh, June 22

Within 24 hours of his arrest in a corruption case, Punjab IAS officer Sanjay Popli is in for more trouble with a fresh FIR lodged against him under the Arms Act. Another complaint alleging he demanded commission in a government project has been received against him.

Vigilance Bureau officials found unaccounted live cartridges from his house during searches today. They found 73 bullets (41 of 7.65 bore, 30 of .22 bore and two of .32 bore) from his house. “A case under the Arms Act was registered at the Sector 11 police station, Chandigarh”. Sources, however, say Popli doesn’t own any licensed weapon.
