Amritsar, April 15

The Vigilance Bureau here has arrested an Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Nachhatar Singh posted at the Ajnala police station for allegedly seeking and accepting graft of Rs 5,000. He was nabbed following a complaint lodged by Avtar Singh of Shamsherpur village in Fatehgarh Churian here.

The VB spokesman said the complainant alleged that the ASI was demanding Rs 10,000 for favouring his son during investigation in the case registered against him at the Ajnala police station. He said following this, Vigilance sleuths laid a trap and arrested the accused red-handed while accepting a bribe of Rs 5,000 from the complainant in the presence of official witnesses.
