MUMBAI: A sub-inspector (PSI) attached to Shivajinagar police station in suburban Mankhurd was arrested by the Anti Corruption Bureau while allegedly accepting a bribe amount of Rs 4,000 to initiate action in a criminal case.

The PSI had demanded money to take action against the husband of complainant's sister and his relatives in a domestic violence case, ACB officials said today.

Jalindar Misal (57) was investigating an offence under section 498-A (husband or relative of husband of woman subjecting her to cruelty) of the IPC, said an ACB official.

Misal had already accepted Rs 10,000 to initiate action against the husband, in-laws and other relatives of the complainant's sister, he said.
