A special CBI court on Tuesday framed charges against the Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) of UT Police Des Raj who was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on February 26 last year, three days before his retirement.
The ASI, who has a record of arresting over 200 proclaimed offenders for the UT Police, was booked on charges of demanding a bribe.
The accused had managed to escape from the CBI on the night of the trap while his accomplice, head constable Vijender Singh, was arrested for demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs 3,000 from a proclaimed offender for not arresting him on February 25 from his residence in Sector 46.
