Payments revolution? Minhas, the then superintendent of police Enforcement , who was transferred soon after he directed the police to register timber smuggling cases against Mast Ram Tanta and others India Today. February According to the high court's letter, in October Ram Lal: awkward issues Timber Transported: In his directive dated October 18, , to the Dhalli police station, Minhas pointed out that Chandu Ram allowed a truck, HPS , to pass check-post Dhalli after proper checking and verification though the truck was carrying 35 scams of timber without any export hammer mark or personal property mark and 75 CFT of timber market value Rs 1 lakh was being transported in the truck without any proper export permit.

Embarrassment Averted: State police officials are not talking but the high court has hinted that "this was done evidently under pressure from higher echelons of the Government so as to prevent the guard from divulging other secrets known by him".
According to police sources, if Chandu Ram was also charged along with Padam Singh then criminal proceedings against both of them would have had to be launched - and that would have hit the headlines. Therefore, the police handled the case as a 'sensitive' one. Concluded the high court communication: "It appears that everyone concerned in the investigation and prosecution of the case tried to ensure that the matter was hushed up with a nominal sentence or fine.
