According to the CBI, they received a complaint on July 10 from an individual operating an e-rickshaw charging shop located at LSC Market, K Block in Mangolpuri, Delhi. The complainant alleged that on July 7, a head constable named Bhim from the Mangolpuri police station threatened him. The threat included disrupting the complainant’s e-rickshaw charging shop operations, confiscating the e-rickshaws, and demanding a bribe of Rs 50,000 in order to grant permission for parking and charging e-rickshaws in front of the shop.
Acting swiftly on the complaint, the CBI set up a trap operation, leading to the accused being caught red-handed while accepting the bribe. The entire sequence of events was captured by a CCTV camera installed outside the police station, providing undeniable evidence of the alleged wrongdoing.
