Patna: Bihar police’s Economic Crime Unit (EOU) has registered an FIR against IPS officer Gaya Amit Lodha for allegedly receiving money from a film production company, an official said on Friday.
According to Nayyer Hasnain Khan, ADGP of EOU, a production company did a web series called Khakee based on Amit Lodha’s book and received the money in his wife’s bank account.
He said that the Inspector General of Lodha police had been placed under the relevant sections of the union public affairs commission law. In addition, Lodha did not seek permission from police headquarters before writing the book and its contents were used in the web series.
During the investigation, it appears that Lodha took money from the production company Friday StoryTellers and Netflix.
The Khakee web series is based on the biography of 1997 IPS officer Amit Lodha when he was deployed as SP in Naxal-hit Sheikhpura district. Criminal activities are at their peak in Sheikhpura as he takes on the role of SP and makes the area crime free.
