CBI on Monday arrested the sub-inspector, identified as Dharam Pal Singh

 

A sub-inspector with the Railway Protection Force (RPF) has landed in CBI custody for seeking Rs 7,000 bribe from a tea stall owner in Madhya Pradesh for allowing him to install a tin shed at his shop. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday arrested the sub-inspector, identified as Dharam Pal Singh, for demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs 7,000 from the complainant. Singh is the in-charge of an RPF Chowki in Banapur area in Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh.

A case was registered on a complaint lodged by the tea stall owner in which it was alleged that the SI had demanded a bribe of Rs 8,000 from the complainant for allowing him to install a tin shed at his shop opposite the Dolaria railway station in Hoshangabad district. It was further alleged that the accused later negotiated the bribe to Rs 7,000.

The CBI laid a trap and caught the accused red-handed while accepting the bribe amount from the complainant. "Searches are being conducted at the premises of the accused," the CBI said in a statement, adding that Singh will be produced before a competent court.
