NEW DELHI: The former Punjab Director-General of Police, S.S. Virk, was arrested by the Punjab Vigilance at Maharashtra Sadan here on Sunday for allegedly possessing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.

The Punjab police registered a case under the Prevention of Corruption Act against Mr. Virk on Saturday following preliminary investigations.
