Watch the viral and dramatic video making waves on social media as CBI arrests Delhi police officers caught in a bribery scandal.
The Punjab Vigilance Bureau (VB) on Monday arrested a police sub-inspector (SI) Bisman Singh, an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) Resham Singh posted at CIA Jalandhar, and their middleman Surjit Singh for taking a bribe of Rs 1 lakh.
Disclosing this on Monday, a spokesperson of the VB said the above-mentioned accused have been arrested on the complaint of Harjinder Kumar, a resident of village Rampur Thoda in the Rupnagar district.
He said the complainant had approached the VB alleging that the sub-inspector had arrested his brother from Hoshiarpur along with his truck in a false case by showing recovery of poppy husk in the vehicle when he was earlier posted as station house officer (SHO), Sadar Police Station Nakodar, Jalandhar.
The complainant alleged the SI, Bisman Singh, through a private person Surjit Singh and ASI Resham Singh had already received Rs 11 lakh in installments to release his brother and the truck loaded from Srinagar.
He further alleged that though the accused police sub-inspector has been transferred to police lines Jalandhar, he was demanding more money through his two other middlemen to help him in this police case.
“After verification of the facts in the complaint and the material evidence, a VB team has arrested the above-mentioned sub-inspector Bisman Singh, ASI Rehsam Singh and private person Surjit Singh for accepting a bribe of Rs 1,00,000 from the complainant in the presence of two official witnesses,” the spokesperson said.
