On a complaint, the anti-graft body laid a trap and caught the SI red-handed. The ACB officials suspect that half of the amount and one liquor bottle was for his superior, the Circle Inspector, who is absconding.

The investigations by ACB revealed that the SI on the direction of his senior demanded Rs 1 lakh as the bribe from a citizen for the bail and to settle the civil case in Lok Adalat. However, on the complaint of that person, ACB laid the trap and caught SI while receiving Rs 50,000 as advance. ACB officials were questioning Sudheer Reddy for further investigations.
