A BMC sanitary inspector of H-East ward has been arrested on Monday for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs 20,000 from a person to get his license.

The accused has been identified as Jagdish Dhopte. The complainant told the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) officials that the accused had demanded Rs 50,000 from him in March in order to get a license for a restaurant. Dhopte then settled for Rs 20,000. However, the complainant approached the ACB who laid a trap and arrested Dhopte red-handed.
