Patna: A Vigilance team in Patna on Thursday arrested the in-charge of Beur Police Station after he was caught red-handed taking Rs. 1.25 lakh in bribe money from a man seeking to file an FIR against someone over an ongoing land dispute.
Rakesh Kumar Yadav, who took charge of the Beur Police Station not too long, was nabbed by plain-clothed Vigilance officers just seconds after the corruption victim handed over Rs. 1.25 lakh to him.
As reported, one Amarendra Kumar, a resident of Kachchi Dargah in Patna, had approached the station in-charge a few days ago to file an FIR against a member of his family who had been fighting with him over a piece of land.
Yadav told the victim that he would lodge an FIR only if he paid him Rs. 1.25 lakh in bribe money – Rs. 1 lakh for himself and the rest for other staff of the police station.
After this, Amarendra Kumar approached the Vigilance Investigation Bureau office in Patna and lodged a complaint against the Beur police station in-charge.
A plan was devised to catch Rakesh Kumar Yadav in action so on Thursday, Amarendra went to the police station with cash as vigilance team led by Vigilance DSP Kanishk Kumar waited outside in plain clothes. As soon as the money exchanged hands, two vigilance officers rushed into the station in-charge's room and caught him with cash in his hand.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
