Policeman are businessmen as w

Several police officers are known to have a parallel source of income. Apart from the policing, many are known to have invested heavily in real-estate, hotels, dance-bars, beer bars, etc.

With the real estate industry booming and everyone rushing to grab a pie of it, even policemen are not far behind. According to sources in the Police department, there are several police officers including a couple of encounter specialists who have invested heavily in real-estate.

“In most cases, a police officer, to ensure that he is not exposed, becomes a sleeping partner in a business or the whole business is run in the name of a third person,” a senior police officer said. When senior police inspector AB Chavan of the Kherwadi police station was arrested by the Anti-Corruption Bureau, they found that apart from having amassed wealth and property worth over a crore, he had also obtained a distributorship in the name of his wife for selling edible oil for the Kolhapur district.

A senior IPS officer of Maharashtra is believed to have more than 50 tourist buses plying in the state. Another senior IPS officer is a partner in a pharmaceutical company in another state. Many officers are also believed to be sleeping partners in petrol pumps as well. Some of the officers who are presently in the force and some who have retired have started security services.
