Just nine days after two clerks attached to the Mira Bhayandar-Vasai Virar (MBVV) police were booked for demanding bribe from a constable to clear the wage difference in accordance with the Seventh Pay Commission and for processing medical bills, a woman constable attached to the Virar police station was caught red-handed while accepting bribe from a complainant on Friday.

The constable, Samiksha Mohite (51), allegedly sought Rs1,500 to settle a dispute between the complainant and his brother and avoid preventive action. This was despite the fact that both the parties arrived at an amicable settlement in the non-cognizable complaint. After negotiations, the demand was scaled down to Rs 1,000. However, the aggrieved party registered a complaint with the Palghar unit of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB).

Following verifications, the ACB team led by Police Inspector Swapan Biswas, under the instructions of Superintendent Sunil Lokhande, laid a trap and caught the constable red-handed while accepting the bribe money. An offense under the relevant sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act has been registered against the tainted cop. Further investigations are underway.
