Srinagar- The sleuths of Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Thursday trapped a policeman for demanding and accepting a bribe from a person for releasing his son from police custody.

The ACB Jammu received a written complaint on Thursday from a man alleging that his son Sahil Mehra has been arrested in a false and frivolous case on the complaint of a local resident of Chinore, a Bureau spokesperson said. Mohd Sultan, SgCt of Chinore Police Post Jammu, he said, had demanded Rs. 8,000 as bribe for release of his son from Police custody.

The complainant, he said, had also stated that Munshi was demanding Rs 4000 from the complainant for releasing his son, despite taking Rs 4000 earlier for the same purpose.

 “The complainant stated that he didn’t want to pay the bribe but the said official compelled him to pay the bribe and under compelled circumstances he is going to pay the balance bribe of Rs. 4000/- to said Munshi and requested for taking action under law,” the ACB spokesperson added.
