He refused a bribe of Rs 500, but earned a Rs 2,000 reward from his seniors. An alert Delhi traffic police constable helped catch a notorious criminal from Sangam Vihar area. The criminal was caught because he was riding a motorcycle without a number plate.

“When the constable stopped the offender, he offered him a bribe of Rs 500. He told the constable that he belonged to a group of pickpockets who operates in Blueline buses and promised him a cut every month,” said Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police (traffic).

However, the officer said the constable turned down his offer.

During investigations, it was found that the offender was a known criminal from Sangam Vihar area. The other person, accompanying the offender, was also wanted in several criminal cases.

The two were detained and handed over to the local police.
