The CBI on Friday arrested a sub-inspector of the agency posted in Mumbai for allegedly threatening and accepting a bribe for not arresting a person in connection with a case which the officer was investigating.

Deepak Kumar, posted at the Economic Offences Wing of the agency, was arrested for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 10,000 from a complainant at his residence in Ghatkopar in Mumbai as part of first installment.

The complainant had claimed the officer had threatened to arrest him in connection with a case in which he was named in the FIR but not in the chargesheet, if a bribe amount of Rs 50,000 was not paid, a CBI spokesperson said.

The CBI is currently carrying out searches at the accused officer's residence and official premises.
