Tongues are wagging at police HQ on the “big buy” made by a senior IPS officer. “Did you hear, one of our senior colleagues has purchased a bungalow for Rs 12 crore at Sainik Farms in New Delhi?” is a common refrain. Even lower rank cops have been heard disc­ussing the “open sec­ret”. Of cou­rse, some dismiss the story as a motivated rumour spr­ead by those trying to nip the officer’s promotion, but others say there is more to it than meets the eye. “With his salary, it’s impossible to even pur­chase property worth Rs 1 crore,” one officer quipped. The buzz is the said bungalow belonged to a veteran J&K neta’s brother, who is expected to push the officer’s name when the time is right.
