Nov 15, 2018-
DSP Shyam Rai of the Metropolitan Police Circle, Boudha, who was caught red-handed with bribe money, was released after posting a bail amount of Rs 140,000 on Thursday.
A team deployed from the Tangal-based Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) had arrested DSP Rai while was receiving Rs 14,000 from a service seeker on Saturday.
A division bench of Justices of Special Court Dwarikaman Joshi, Ratna Bahadur Bag Chand and Pramod Kumar Shrestha issued the order to release Rai on bail.
DSP Rai had allegedly sought money from a service seeker to buy a Sony television set with a retail value of Rs 140,000.
The anti-graft constitutional body said that DSP Rai had repeatedly called the service seeker to pay the bill amount of the television set which he had bought.
Fed up with the continuous harassment by the police personnel, the service seeker filed a complaint at the CIAA.
Following the complaint, a team from Tangal-based CIAA office caught DSP Rai red-handed while accepting the bribe money.
Earlier on Wednesday, the CIAA had filed a graft case against DSP Rai at the Special Court.
