    It was only an inspector and hence no one came to his rescue. If joint cit or cit are raided crores of disproportionate assets could be found and seized. But then these higher ups have protective hands supporting them. No action and orders of courts in such cases. Someone should find out what has happened to cases where higher officers were caught in last 3 years.

    The corruption in any department cannot happen in isolation and there will be a interlinked chain connecting from bottom to top, rather lower to upper levels. The court should take, suo motto, action to assess the property/ies of those in the loop which will help eradicate the malice from the root.
