The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested a UT police constable while accepting Rs 3,000 in bribe on Saturday.

The accused Balraj, holding the post of naib court, at the Sector 43 district courts was arrested from the corridor outside courtroom number 14, as part of a trap.

On April 4, a resident of Milk Colony, Dhanas, Rohani alias Romy, had complained to the agency that Balraj was demanding Rs 5,000 in bribe to help him get bail in a case of voluntarily causing hurt registered at the Sector 11 police station.

Non-bailable warrants had been issued against Romy, after he had stopped appearing before the court.

The CBI registered a case under the Prevention of Corruption Act and then caught the accused on Saturday.

There was commotion outside the court when the arrest was carried out.
