Noida, Jun 7 (BPNS)

 A police sub-inspector posted in Uttar Pradesh’s Gautam Buddh Nagar was arrested on charges of corruption after he was caught red-handed taking money in connection with a case, officials said on Tuesday.

The sub-inspector, who was posted at the Jarcha police station in Greater Noida, was arrested by a team from the state’s Anti-Corruption Department (Meerut Zone), they said.

“Taking note of the incident, Gautam Buddh Nagar Police Commissioner Alok Singh also issued an order for suspension of sub-inspector Yogendra Singh Yadav and strict departmental action against him over the matter,” a police spokesperson said.

According to officials, Yadav had sought a Rs 30,000 bribe from a person who was accused in a case of assault and breach of peace that took place on May 2 in Kalaunda village in the Jarcha area.

A trap was laid by the Anti-Corruption team and the person had reached the police station around 4 pm on Tuesday when the sub-inspector was caught red-handed while taking the money, officials added.
