CBI arrests Delhi Police SI for graft
New Delhi, Feb 3: CBI has arrested a sub-inspector of Delhi Police for allegedly receiving a bribe of Rs 17,000 from a person for releasing his water tanker.
It was alleged that Sub-Inspector Rahul of Mundka police station was demanding a bribe of Rs 25,000 from the complainant to release his water tank which was impounded by him in another case.
The FIR said that a team of Central Bureau of Investigation officials along with the complainant went to Mundka.
The team, led by Central Bureau of Investigation Inspector Raman Kumar Shukla, gave the complainant a hidden device to record the conversation, as it waited at a distance, with the police officer who was allegedly demanding a bribe.
The conversation corroborated that Rs 25,000 was allegedly demanded as a bribe which was further reduced to Rs 17,000. The agency also recorded an alleged phone call from the SI in which he was purportedly heard negotiating bribe money.
“CBI laid a trap and caught the accused red-handed while demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs 17,000 from the complainant,” CBI spokesperson R K Gaur said.
