He added that the complainant approached the bureau and alleged that both the accused have raided his house without any official duty and nothing was found from his premises.
Despite that they were demanding a bribe of Rs. 5,000 for not booking him in an excise case.
After finding the veracity of facts a vigilance team led bureau DSP Satpal laid a trap and nabbed both the accused near Nakodar Railway Station in the presence of two government officials as witnesses. The tainted money was recovered from them.
A case has been registered under Prevention of Corruption Act at VB Police Station at Jalandhar and further investigation are underway.
