MH-BRIBE-POLICE-SUSPEND


Police inspector Anand Bhoir, who

was arrested by the ACB for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs

22 lakh, was suspended Thursday, police said.

Bhoir, attached to the Crime Branch, and his driver

were caught while allegedly accepting Rs 22 lakh in cash from

a liquor shop owner Tuesday, an official said.

After the arrest, he was suspended from service and

orders were issued by the office of the Commissioner of

Police, he said.

The 43-year-old officer was deputed at Andheri unit of

the Crime Branch and was nabbed by ACB officers after a chase

in an auto-rickshaw, he said.

Bhoir was investigating a case of liquor seizure in

which he allegedly threatened a liquor shop owner, saying an

FIR will be filed against him and his brother and demanded a

bribe of Rs 25 lakh for not doing so, the official said.

After negotiation, the liquor shop owner agreed to

give Rs 22 lakh, following which a trap was laid by the ACB

and Bhoir was arrested while accepting the bribe amount, he

said.
