Delhi Police SI caught red-handed while accepting Rs 50,000 bribe

A sub-inspector of Delhi Police was arrested by the CBI, while he was taking a bribe of Rs 50,000 from a person for not implicating him in a case, officials said on Friday.

The officer, identified as Daya Ram, is posted at the Chanakyapuri police station in New Delhi. He had allegedly demanded a bribe of Rs 4 lakh from the complainant for not implicating him in a case which was being investigating by him, said an official of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

On Thursday, CBI laid a trap and the official was caught red-handed while accepting a bribe of Rs 50,000 from the complainant near a Gurudwara in south Delhi’s Moti Bagh.

Later, searches were also conducted at the residential premises of the sub-inspector, the official
added.

It is important to mention that this is not the first case where a Delhi Police official is caught taking a bribe.

In November 2012, the CBI had arrested a sub-inspector posted in a special team of the crime branch for allegedly taking bribe. Dinesh Dahiya was caught red-handed while accepting a bribe of Rs 3 lakh from a person. Later, a raid was conducted at his premises and Rs 4.25 lakh were also recovered from his premises.

In a similar case in November 2010,  another sub-inspector of Delhi Police was arrested by the CBI for allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs 30 lakh from a person for getting a case settled. Mahipal Singh, who was then posted at Khyala police station in west Delhi, allegedly demanded the bribe from one Rakesh Agarwal and his wife against whom Mahipal Singh’s builder friend Shravan Yadav had filed a complaint.

In March 2006, the CBI has arrested another sub-inspector for accepting bribe from a cable operator to help him in a police case. Rajesh Kumar, then posted at Ambedkar Nagar police station, was arrested while allegedly accepting Rs 10 thousand as bribe from a Dakshinpuri cable operator, records of CBI revealed.
