The petition had said the diary was recovered during a raid at a bootleggers residence in August.One Praful Desai, of Jagate Raho Party in Vadodara, has filed a PIL in connection with the recent police raid under the Pani Gate Police station area. During the search, the cops had recovered a dairy which contains details about how much bribe was paid to which police officer.The petitioner also claimed that though the police are inquiring into the diary, hardly any action was taken. Desai also alleged that the police commissioner has not pursued a thorough inquiry in a time-bound manner.The petitioner also contended that this was a clear case of generating black money and, when there is a prohibition in the state, it is the police department’s duty to ensure its implementation. However, this incident seeks the court’s intervention.The petitioner also pleaded that a retired judge should head the case and look into the diary and decide the course of action. The inquiry report should be tabled before the high court within two months, Desai pleaded.The matter came up for hearing before the first division bench of Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice Vipul Pancholi on Friday. After hearing the petitioner, the court instructed Assistant Government Pleader Dharmesh Devnani to take instruction from the state government and decided to have another hearing in next week.According to the petition, Vadodara city police had conducted a raid at bootlegger Vikram Chawda’s home on August 25 and seized IMFL worth Rs. 2.19 lakh worth. When the police raided Vikram and his three other associates had fled away. But, during search, a diary was found which carried bribe amount details.
