A police inspector was arrested for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs. 20,000 from a complainant, Anti-Corruption Bureau said.
“We have arrested police inspector Ashok Kashiram Gajbhiye, 57, attached to Kanjur Marg police station, while he was accepting Rs. 20,000 from complainant at his residence in Bhandup,” said a statement issued by the ACB.
