THANE: Two policemen have been booked for allegedly taking Rs 1.10 lakh as bribe from a complainant, police said.

A police inspector and a constable, both attached to Bazarpeth police station in Kalyan, had allegedly sought a bribe of Rs 1.10 lakhs from a local builder in November-December 2014, for not registering an offence in connection with a complaint against him, an official release from Thane police said.

Out of fear, the builder allegedly paid the bribe to the two policemen, it said.

The builder in his complaint also claimed to have filmed the incident and later sent the recording to senior police officials.

The release also mentioned that after receiving the bribe, the inspector kept Rs 1 lakh for himself and gave Rs 10,000 to the constable. The duo additionally demanded Rs 50 lakh from the complainant, it was alleged.

Subsequently, the builder approached the police which registered a case against the accused yesterday under relevant sections of Prevention of Corruption Act.

Efforts were on to nab the accused.

The investigation in the case was being carried out by Assistant Commissioner of Police Chandrakant Joshi of Bhiwandi division, the release added.
