According to the complaint, the SHO of the Lajpat Nagar police station had asked for a bribe of Rs 50,000 through the SI for hushing up a case against Trehan and his wife, which was pending investigations.

However, SHO VK Malhotra who allegedly asked for the bribe, has not been named in the chargesheet, even though the document states that a motive to demand bribe by the SHO could be inferred.

"To sum up the case against accused Malhotra, it is found in investigation that there was lack of supervision which constitutes a charge of gross misconduct on his part, and so Regular Departmental Action for major penalty against him is recommended," the chargesheet said.

On March 24 last year the agency's Anti-Corruption Branch reportedly laid a trap and caught Singh accepting Rs 30,000 from Trehan. They also claimed to have made a digital audio recording of the conversation between the two.
