High court hands over former SSP Shiv Kumar graft case to CBI

Acting on a petition filed by former Vigilance Bureau Senior Superintendent of Police Shiv Kumar Sharma, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday transferred 9 year old graft case to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

A case was registered against former SSP in August 2009 at the Sadar police station in Ferozepur for allegedly implicating a 'patwari' (revenue official).
