In keeping with the Supreme Court direction, suspended sub-inspector Daya Nayak would surrender before the Anti-Corruption Bureau sleuths on Saturday, his family sources said.
Nayak would surrender in a disproportionate assets case.
Nayak has great respect for the judiciary and he will surrender before the ACB on Saturday, the sources said.
The ACB sources said the investigating agency had taken steps to arrest Nayak but his whereabouts were not known.
The apex court on Friday asked Nayak to surrender and refused to intervene in the Bombay High Court order rejecting his anticipatory bail plea.
The ACB had booked Nayak for allegedly possessing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income and also registered case against his wife Komal and alleged associate Rajendra Padte for helping Nayak in laundering his ill-gotten wealth.
Earlier, Nayak, Komal and Padte had moved the session court for anticipatory bail but the plea was rejected. They then moved the Bombay High Court, which rejected the bail plea of Nayak and Padte but granted bail to Komal.
Being aggrieved, Nayak moved the Supreme Court, which asked him to surrender before the ACB.
