    This is just an eye wash. If they raid all ministers and other politicians everyone will go to jail. Who is not corrupt in India? Lower level officers have to give their share to ministers . The textbooks in elementary schools in USA says " India is ruled by council of ministers. Below them everyone is corrupt".

    Only 53% excess income and punishment so hard???... Unbelievable at times... If this case is a yardstick then govt will have to build additional jails to house corrupt officials and possibly politicians(?)...

    This is Ridiculous. The total assets of the officer as I read in a newspaper was 1.15 crores in 34 yrs of his service & Income was 75 lakhs. Hr has been sentenced for that 40 Lakhs difference. Any fool can grow an asset by 40 Lakhs in 34 years. Looks to be an officer targeted & chased even after 14 yrs of Retirement with some motives. Police circles tell that he was too helpful to Public & that made him a scapegoat.
