Bengaluru: Four cops including a female inspector were suspended for trying to fix an interior designer in a false case.

The suspended cops are Renuka M, who heads the Whitefield CEN Crime police station in eastern Bengaluru, sub-inspectors Naveen and Ganesh, and constable Hemanth.

They were suspended on the basis of a report filed by the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB), which is investigating a bribery case against the cops.

Case details:

Interior designer, Sudeep V V, had filed a complaint with the corruption watchdog on July 20 alleging that a police team headed by Ganesh had hauled him and his wife up to the police station on July 16 to investigate a “cheating” complaint filed by his client, who had contracted them for interior designing work.

Sudeep who denied the client’s allegation was forced to transfer Rs 5 lakh to the client though he sought time to finish the work. However, it did not end there they demanded another Rs 10 lakh to spare him.

Unable to meet the bribery demand, Sudeep met Ganesh at the police station and recorded the conversation with him on his phone.

The audiotape purportedly shows the sub-inspector confessing to having received Rs 5 lakh and demanding another Rs 5 lakh. He tells Sudeep that the money had gone to Renuka (the inspector) and that other cops didn’t get a dime.
