Bengaluru: A senior police in Bengaluru was suspended by the department for allegedly demanding Rs 50 lakh bribe in exchange for the release of two men, who were held while transporting 100 bottles of alcohol in the city.

The suspended police officer is Assistant Commissioner of Police of Electronics City, Vasu. He was suspended after one of the two men who were arrested, accused Vasu of demanding a bribe to set them free. Although the arrest occurred two weeks ago, ACP Vasu was suspended on Friday, April 24.

However, following his arrest ACP Vasu has now accused his superior, Additional Commissioner of Police (East), S Murugan, claiming that some of the liquor bottles were to be delivered to CP Murugan.

Earlier, ACP Vasu followed a car with the ‘GST-emergency’ board on it on the suspicion that the board was fake. Regional media claimed that the ACP tailed the Tata Sumo car and stopped it near Bettadasanapura Main Road. Upon checking the inside of the vehicle, he found eight carton boxes with 100 alcohol bottles.

ACP Vasu seized the liquor bottles and arrested two men in the car. The two accused are Vishesh Gupta and Gopi. They were taken to the Electronics City Police Station.

Vasu also alleged that Vishesh Gupta offered him a bribe of Rs 50 lakh to be set free, he also claimed that Vishesh had told him that the eight cartons were being delivered to Additional Commissioner of Police S Murugan.

However, ACP Vasu booked the duo and took them into custody for interrogation. Local media reported that on April 12, Addl CP Murugan called Vasu and asked to meet him at the Madiwala Police Station and to allegedly set the duo free.

Vasu informed Murugan that an FIR had already been registered. Murugan reportedly asked Vasu to release them on bail to which Vasu allegedly replied that the process of getting bail would take time.

Vasu was suspended as he had not adhered to Murugan’s order to release the suspects, informed sources.
