The Delhi Police dismissed the station house officer (SHO) of Saket today, a day after he was arrested along with an advocate of a real estate firm by the CBI on bribery charges.

Yesterday, the CBI carried out a raid following inputs and allegedly found advocate Neeraj Walia paying Rs 2 lakh as bribe to SHO Neeraj Kumar on behalf of Unitech Ltd.

Kumar was placed under suspension yesterday and an inquiry was ordered against him.

On the basis of the inquiry, he was dismissed from service today, a senior police officer said.

It is alleged that the Saket district court had referred 47 cases related to Unitech to the Saket police station for a probe. The firm was allegedly making regular payments to the SHO to "manage" these cases, officials had said.

The central probe agency also booked Unitech Ltd founder Ramesh Chandra, in the case and registered FIR against nine accused -- eight individuals and company Unitech Ltd.

The anti-terrorism officer of Hauz Khas police station was sent to district line after he was allegedly found connected with the matter.
