Inspector arrested

Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: The Directorate of Vigilance and Anti Corruption police on Tuesday arrested an Inspector of Police on charges of taking bribe.

According to sources in the agency, Ethirajan of Old Washermenpet had rented his house to Ashok Kumar. When he asked the tenant to vacate, the latter refused and claimed ownership of the house.

Ethirajan moved the court and in the process Ashok Kumar sent petitions to the Director-General of Police that Ethirajan had abused him on caste lines.

The Inspector (Human Rights and Social Justice), G. Sundaramoorthy, who enquired the allegations, demanded a bribe of Rs.25,000 to close the case in his favour. Not willing to pay the bribe, Ethirajan lodged a complaint with the DVAC police.

A special team led by Deputy Superintendent of Police K. Ponnuchamy laid a trap and arrested the Inspector soon after he took a bribe of Rs.5,000 as first instalment from the complainant in Old Washermenpet.

The accused was produced in a city court and remanded to judicial custody, the sources added.
