The Khanna police arrested an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) on the charges of accepting a bribe of Rs 5,000 to delay the police action against a man in some scuffle case.

The policeman has been identified as ASI Harpal Singh, posted at the Payal police station. The bribe amount has been recovered by the police from the suspect.

Superintendent of Police (Investigation), Khanna, Pragya Jain, in a statement said Gurpreet Singh of Ghudani Kalan gave a statement to the police that Pappu Lal and Gurvir Singh of his village had some fight in the village over some issue.
