Lokayukta police on Wednesday caught a sub-inspector of police and home guard red-handed while accepting bribe of Rs 20,000.
Acting on a complaint by Paresh Jain, the special police establishment team laid a trap and caught the police personnel from Bengali Square.
According to Lokayukta police, “DS Chandel, SI in Kanadia police station demanded Rs 50,000 from the complainant to let him off in a falsely implicated case.”
Police said, Paresh was wrongly implicated in a case and Chandel was threatening him of severe consequences if he does not pay him money.
After negotiations, they settled for Rs 20,000 and Wednesday was fixed to exchange the money.
SI Chandel sent a home guard Shivprakash Mishra to collect the amount from Paresh from Bengali Square where he was caught by the Lokayukta police while accepting bribe.
