A Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspector was booked by the Anti-Corruption Bureau for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe, an official said on Saturday.

FDA Inspector Arvind Kandelkar demanded ₹5 lakh for not taking action against a sweets manufacturing unit in Rabale area of neighbouring Navi Mumbai, deputy superintendent of police (ACB) Ramesh Chavan said.

“After the ACB was alerted, we laid a trap and caught Kandelkar when he came to take ₹1.4 lakh as bribe in nearby Airoli,” he said.

A case has been registered with Rabale MIDC police station under Prevention of Corruption Act but he is yet to be arrested, Chavan said.
