Tarn Taran, May 1
The Vigilance Bureau (VB) on Friday arrested an Assistant Sub-Inspector while taking a bribe of Rs 10,000 from Mangal Singh, a social worker, in Bhikhiwind.
The accused has been identified as Lakhwinder Singh, who was deputed as a driver at the CIA Staff. Three women associates of the accused were on the run.
The VB officials said the complainant, Mangal Singh, had approached Raj Kaur Prabh and sought her support to resolve property dispute with his neighbour.
After receiving repeated calls from Raj, Mangal went to her residence on Thursday and the former forced him to hug her. The incident was recorded in a camera.
Later, Raj called Lakhwinder on the spot who threatened to book Mangal under rape charges. The ASI who was accompanied with another woman demanded Rs 1 lakh to settle the issue. The ASI snatched his purse, which contained more than Rs 8,000 and also took his Aadhaar Card, registration card of his motorcycle and other documents.
The ASI asked Mangal to pay remaining amount on Friday at the residence of Raj.
Mangal approached the VB that laid a trap and nabbed the ASI red-handed while taking Rs10,000 as bribe from the complainant. A case under Section 7 of the PCA 1988 and Sections 389 and 120-B of the IPC was registered. The ASI was produced before the court today, which sent him to three-day police remand.
