Woman Constable Allegedly Takes Bribe, Tries To Swallow Money When Caught

The woman constable allegedly accepted a bribe of Rs 300 from the complainant (representational)

Mumbai:  A woman police constable from Kolhapur in western Maharashtra allegedly accepted a bribe of Rs 300 and then tried to swallow the money when caught, an official said today.

The incident took place on Wednesday at Chandgad police station in Kolhapur.

"Dipali Khadke, a woman police constable posted at Chandgad police station, was caught accepting a bribe of Rs 300 from a 28-year-old complainant," the official said.

The complainant had submitted an application to get a character certificate for obtaining passport, he said.

"After the woman constable's demand of bribe, the complainant approached the Anti-Corruption Bureau's (ACB) Kolhapur unit and lodged a complaint. Accordingly, a trap was laid out at the police station's record room," he said.

When Ms Khadke, who has been in the police force for not more than five years, realised that she has been caught, she put the currency notes into her own mouth and started chewing and swallowing them, an official said.

"The ACB officials were shocked to see this, but one of the women constables acted swiftly and opened her mouth and recovered the currency notes," he said.

The bureau managed to recover half-torn currency notes as evidence, he said.

Further investigation is on.
