The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Wednesday nabbed a Sub-Inspector of the Gandhi Nagar police station for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs.30,000 from a complainant.
The ACB officials, who nabbed the SI after laying a trap based on the complaint, are collecting more information from the SI about the bribe amount, which was reportedly recovered from his possession.
According to the ACB, Gandhinagar Police Station SI Lakshminarayana demanded a bribe of Rs 50,000 from a complainant in connection with a cheating case. Later, they agreed on Rs 30,000.
The victim then approached the ACB officials. On Wednesday, the ACB arrested Lakshminarayana and a constable red-handed while taking the bribe. Both the officials were sent for custody after appearing in court.
Earlier this month, the ACB officials arrested eight persons including Assistant Commissioner of police Y. Narsimha Reddy in a multi-crore land scam case.
More details are awaited.
