According to a CBI release, the complainant who has an agricultural land beside a railway track in Thummala Cheruvu village, cut a signal cable of the Railways as the embankment of his land was damaged. As the victim realised that a Railway cable had been damaged, he approached Mani Prasad and explained the situation.

Taking advantage of the situation, the SI threatened to register a case unless Rs 1 lakh bribe was given.

Later, as the victim expressed his inability to arrange Rs 1 Lakh, the SI settled for Rs 30,000 and the latter had directed the complainant to make the payment. Vexed, the complainant approached the CBI who laid a trap and arrested the SI while accepting the amount at Nadikudi Railway station.

The accused will be produced before the Special Judge Court for CBI cases in Visakhapatnam.
