The complainant had already paid Rs 1 lakh to the ASP while his wife was demanding 45 lakh for the settlement of the divorce case. The complaint was forwarded to the special unit-2 (SU-2) of the ACB for verification and after the demand was proved the ACB team led by Deputy Superintendent of Police, Mangilal Choudhary of SU-2, trapped the middleman Ashok Bishnoi accepting the bribe for ASP Jingar around 1.30 am on Tuesday night.
