THE Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB), Mumbai, arrested Shama Sayyed, Police Sub-Inspector (PSI) attached with Malwani Police Station, for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs. 4,000.
The complainant owns a tea-stall in the Malwani police station’s jurisdiction. On May 16, 2014, the police carried proceedings against a worker at the tea-stall of the complainant, involved in riot. The investigating officer in the matter was Sayyed, who called the complainant to the Malwani police station. On July 6, 2014, the complainant visited Sayyed in the Malwani Police station, where Sayyed threatened of taking action against him and uprooting the stall if he failed to produce the worker, against whom the proceedings were carried. The complainant pleaded Sayyed to not to take action against him, so she demanded Rs. 5,000 from the complainant for not taking any action in the matter.
The complainant had no intentions of submitting to her demands so he approached the ACB, Mumbai on July 7, 2014 for filling a complaint against her. On the directions of the ACB the complainant met Sayyed who reduced the bribe amount to Rs. 4,000 after a bargain. And on this basis the ACB registered an FIR against Sayyed on July 7, 2014.
On July 8, 2014 The ACB set a trap at the Malwani Police Station and arrested Sayyed while accepting the bribe amount of Rs. 4,000. Further investigations in the matter are in process.
