Jk Railway Official Convicted in Decade-Old Bribery Case

A special CBI court delivered a significant verdict on Tuesday, convicting Tilak Raj, the former Head Goods Clerk, for accepting a bribe to alleviate penalty charges a decade ago. The conviction sheds light on a corruption scandal that unfolded at the Jammu Railway Station, implicating railway officials in an illicit transaction.

Tilak Raj, in his role as the Head Goods Clerk, was apprehended in a red-handed arrest while accepting a bribe of Rs 20,000. The illicit exchange aimed to reduce penalty charges imposed due to a delay in lifting consignments from the Jammu Railway Station. The conviction by Special Judge Bala Jyoti underscores the severity of corrupt practices within the railway system.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had initially charged both Tilak Raj and his colleague, Kameshwar Singh, who were then serving as Head Goods Clerks at the Goods Office, Northern Railway, Railway Station, Jammu. Their alleged demand for a bribe amounting to Rs 22,000 from the complainant triggered the investigative process.

In a meticulously planned trap operation, Tilak Raj was caught accepting Rs 20,000 from the complainant. Notably, the bribe money was shared with two other accused individuals. The subsequent arrest of all three accused parties led to a charge sheet filed the following year.

“During the trial, unfortunate demises occurred, with Tarsem Lal and Kameshwar Singh passing away. Consequently, the trial against them was abated, and the quantum of punishment for the convicted Tilak Raj will be pronounced tomorrow,” stated a CBI spokesperson.

The legal proceedings saw the presentation of a robust case by the CBI, incorporating 21 witnesses and 31 documents/evidences to substantiate the charges. The successful validation of these charges during the trial in court reaffirms the commitment to combating corruption within the railway sector. This conviction serves as a stern reminder of the importance of maintaining integrity within public service, even in the face of past transgressions.
