Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema on Wednesday said an Assistant Controller, posted at the GM office of Punjab Roadways in Ludhiana, had been suspended on graft charges.

Suspended Assistant Controller (Finance and Accounts) Seema Gupta also held the additional charge of the Assistant Controller at Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) in Ludhiana.

Cheema said the Vice-Chancellor, PAU, Ludhiana, had informed through a letter that the officer demanded bribes from employees of the university in exchange of clearing their probation.

Cheema said Principal Secretary Finance Ajoy Kumar Sinha and Director (Treasury and Accounts) Muhammad Tayyab investigated the matter. He said video clips and reports published in various newspapers were received as evidence in the case.

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.

The Tribune, the largest selling English daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the newspaper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.

The Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
