"Cancer of corruption has spread over its tentacles in the social life to such an extent that belief of common man on the institutional work is obliterated. The social fabric is destroyed by corrupt practices in the public service, the judge said."
New Delhi, July 18 - Eight people, including four public servants, were jailed for three years by a court here for misappropriating 13,737 sugar bags of the Delhi Consumers' Cooperative Wholesale Store Ltd (DCCWS).

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Special Judge B.R. Kedia, in his ruling Thursday, found them guilty of corruption.

Prosecution said Vijay Goel, 55, and Sudha Goel, 48, (Partners of M/S Mahamaya Transport Co.), Suman Goel, 56, and Pradeep Goel, 52, entered into criminal conspiracy for misappropriation of the sugar bags lying at the Godown of Mahamaya Transport.

Public servants Sarvjeet Singh Rana, 48, Bhagat Singh Chaudhary, 81, Jagjit Singh Sikka, 65, and Jitender Singh, 53, helped them in the crime.

Cancer of corruption has spread over its tentacles in the social life to such an extent that belief of common man on the institutional work is obliterated. The social fabric is destroyed by corrupt practices in the public service, the judge said.

Not only that such corruption causes loss of faith in public administration, but it also demoralises bunch of honest officers in the concerned institution. The efficiency in public service would improve only when the public servants exhibit honesty in day-to-day affairs.
