CBI nabs female Chandigarh cop in ₹10,000 graft case
The Central Bureau of Investigation on Friday arrested a female sub-inspector while accepting a bribe of ₹10,000 at the Sector-34 police station.
Sub-inspector Sarabjit Kaur was caught red-handed following a complaint by a resident of Kajheri.
The complainant had alleged that Kaur had demanded ₹1 lakh from him for settlement of a rape case registered at the Sector-36 police station in February.
He had already paid ₹50,000 to Kaur, and the remainder was to be paid in five instalments of ₹10,000 each. A voice recording of the demand is also in CBI’s possession.
Police sources said the accused was due for promotion as inspector. She is now facing a case under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
