Ex-Punjab Congress minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot arrested: Former Punjab government minister and Congress leader Sadhu Singh Dharamsot was arrested by Vigilance Bureau from Amloh in Punjab at 3 am on Tuesday. Sadhu Singh Dharamsot is accused of a scam in the forest department while being the Forest Minister.

Congress leader Sadhu Singh Dharamsot has been arrested just before Rahul Gandhi’s visit to Punjab. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi is going to reach Mansa in Punjab today where he can meet the family of famous Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala.

Sadhu Singh Dharamsot is accused of taking bribe in exchange for felling trees while serving as a minister in the Punjab government. However, when Captain Amarinder Singh lost the chair, Dharamsot was also removed from the post of minister. The Bhagwant Mann-led AAP government had earlier sacked its health minister Dr Vijay Singla in a corruption case and has now caught Congress leader Dharamsot.

When the Vigilance Bureau of Punjab caught some Forest Department officials of Mohali on charges of bribery, they disclosed that when Sadhu Singh Dharamsot was a minister in the Congress government, he took a bribe of 500 rupees for cutting a tree. Apart from this, bribe was also taken for planting new trees. Based on this, the Vigilance Bureau has caught the former minister.

Former minister Sadhu Singh Dharamsot has also been involved in the post matric scholarship scam for a long time. As his social security minister, he was accused of wrongly giving scholarship money to private colleges and universities. There was a lot of uproar in the assembly regarding this. Despite this, earlier Captain Amarinder Singh government had given a clean chit to Dharamsot.
