Shiv Dutt Bakshi

The administrator of the Dr. Karni Singh shooting range, Shiv Dutt Bakshi has been suspended by the sports ministry for allegedly taking bribe.

A news channel conducted a string operation which showed the administrator in poor light. The ministry reacted swiftly, giving Bakshi the marching orders on Monday.

The administrator was caught on camera accepting cash and a bottle of liquor offered by the under cover reporter.

An inquiry has been initiated against Bakshi who had taken charge of the range on 17th April 2015.

In January 2012, Bakshi, a senior sports authority of India (SAI) official was earlier suspended as administrator of the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium after he allegedly misappropriated funds given to clean up the stadium before the match between German football club Bayern Munich and India.

However, the charge could not be proved and Bakshi was reinstated.
