New Delhi: Jailed gangster Neeraj Bawana, former Delhi legislator Rambeer Shokeen, and eight others were slapped with the chargesheet by Delhi Police under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) for allegedly running an organised crime syndicate.

Additional Sessions Judge Neena Bansal Krishna received the chargesheet and posted the matter for further hearing on September 24.

Filed by the special cell of Delhi Police, the charge-sheet named Bawana, Shokeen and eight others as accused.

Shokeen, who is on the run, was declared proclaimed offender by the court last week.

Bawana was arrested on April 7 from west Delhi’s Mundka area and is in judicial custody with eight other accused.

The other eight accused are — Pankaj Sehrawat, Sunil Rathi, Rahul Dabas, Naveen Dabas alias Bali, Naveen Hooda alias Bhanja, Amit Malik alias Bhura, Gurpreet Singh, and Deepak Dabas alias Deepa.

The chargesheet said all the accused were running a crime syndicate which was extorting money, committing murders, land grabbing, and settling property disputes—all with the aim of pecuniary benefits.

It was also established that the members of the crime syndicate regularly travelled long distances by road to various parts of India, stayed in good hotels and enjoyed a lavish lifestyle.

The chargesheet stated that the expenses for purchasing arms and ammunition, travelling, mobile phones, internet connections, hotel stay and other daily expenditure were incurred from the extortion money collected from businessmen.

A global anti-corruption watchdog says the United States has dropped four spots in its list of nations’ anti-corruption efforts and is now no longer listed in the top 20 for the first time.

Acting U.S. Representative at Transparency International, Zoe Reiter, calls a four point drop in the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) a “red flag.”

She says it comes at a time when the U.S. is experiencing “threats to its system of checks and balances” and an “erosion of ethical norms at the highest levels of power.”

“If this trend continues, it would indicate a serious corruption problem in a country that has taken a lead on the issue globally,” Reiter says.

The United States scored a 71 in the perceptions index after scoring 75 the previous year.

“The expert opinion captured by the CPI supports the deep concern over corruption in government reported by America in our 2017 survey. Both experts and the public believe the situation is getting worse,” Reiter said.

Transparency International uses several criteria for measuring how well a country is fighting corruption, including checks and balances on political power, controls on conflicts of interest and private influence on government, and voter suppression.
