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.
