The Vigilance Bureau on Saturday nabbed an ASI, Harjinder Singh, posted at the Sadar police station, Zira, in the district while allegedly taking a bribe of Rs 20,000 from Harpreet Singh, a resident of Mahianwala village.

A spokesperson for the VB said the ASI had demanded the bribe for not taking action against Harpreet in a complaint filed against him by Gurmail Kaur, a resident of the same village. The complainant also claimed that the ASI took Rs 3,000 from him on August 4 and now he was demanding Rs 20,000 more. The complainant produced a call recording as evidence.

A team of the VB laid a trap and arrested the ASI while taking Rs 20,000 from the complainant in the presence of official witnesses.
