Sharing the information here on Tuesday, a spokesperson of the Bureau said that the Police Inspector had been identified as Umed Singh posted as Incharge Economic Cell, District Police Hansi while the co-accused middleman has been identified as Shiv Kumar.
Both were arrested after Shiv Kumar accepted a bribe of Rs 1,00,000 from the complainant, a resident of village Dharamkheri, district Hisar. Inspector Umed Singh and Shiv Kumar were nabbed on the complaint of Sunil Kumar.
According to the complaint, the accused police officer is demanding a bribe of Rs 7,00,000 through Shiv Kumar in lieu of exonerating the complainant in a case registered against him at City Police Station, Hansi. Co-accused Shiv Kumar had already accepted a bribe of Rs 5,50,000 last month.
