The service of an inspector of the Crime Research Department of Madhya Pradesh Police was terminated for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh in the alleged nursing colleges scam on Tuesday. The accused was assisting the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in its probe into the alleged nursing colleges scam.

Inspector Sushil Majoka was attached to the CBI probing alleged corruption and irregularities in nursing colleges.

Majoka demanded and accepted a bribe of Rs 2 lakh and was arrested under the provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Prevention of Corruption Act, an official said, citing a letter from CBI.

Following the arrest, the services of Majoka were repatriated to MP Police and later suspected on May 22, he said.

After receiving the information regarding the case registered against Majoka, Inspector General of the Crime Research Department, Anurag Sharma, on Tuesday dismissed Majoka from service as he tarnished the image of the police and failed to maintain high moral values, the official said.

Majoka was sacked under Article 311 of the Constitution which allows termination of services of government employees, he said.

Earlier last week, the CBI had terminated the services of its inspector Rahul Raj who was arrested by the agency while allegedly accepting an illegal gratification of Rs 10 lakh from Malay College of Nursing chairman Anil Bhaskaran and his wife Suma Anil. The couple has also been arrested.

The CBI had swung into action after inputs and surveillance by its internal vigilance unit indicated that one of the support teams constituted on the orders of the Madhya Pradesh High Court to examine infrastructure in nursing colleges in the state was indulging in corruption.

Notably, the Madhya Pradesh government has ordered the closure of 66 nursing colleges across 31 districts in accordance with the High Court order in the alleged nursing college scam being probed by the CBI.
