The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Thursday registered an offence against a senior police inspector for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh from a history-sheeter for not booking him under a stringent law. Shirish Murlidhar Gaikwad, posted at the J J Marg police station in South Mumbai, had demanded Rs 2 lakh as a bribe from Imran `Kutta' alias Imran `Kalia', a dreaded criminal in the area, an official said.

Gaikwad had demanded the bribe for not initiating action against Imran under the Maharashtra Prevention of Dangerous Activities of Slumlords, Bootleggers, Drug Offenders and Dangerous Persons Act (MPDA), he said. Imran paid the bribe amount to the police inspector but at the same time informed the ACB's Mumbai unit about it, the official said. During verification Gaikwad admitted that he had accepted the bribe following which an offence was registered against him under the Prevention of Corruption Act, he added.
