ACB sleuths arrest one for offering bribe to PI in Mumbai

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) sleuths have arrested a person for allegedly offering a bribe to a Police Inspector here, asking him not to demand further extension of police custody of two undertrials.

Police today said that the ACB officials laid a trap at Byculla police station and nabbed Afroze Nizammudin Sheikh red-handed yesterday while offering a bribe of Rs 15,000 to PI Vasant Bhogale following a complaint by him. Mr Bhogale is the investigating officer of a case involving two women, reportedly relatives of Sheikh, arrested on January 14 on the charge of attempt to murder. The women’s custody was to expire yesterday and they had applied for a bail in the Sessions Court.
