The Anti-Corruption Bureau of Rajasthan on Monday detained an officer of the state police for demanding bribe.

The ACB had registered a case against additional Superintendent of Police of the Special Operations Group (SOG) Divya Mittal on January 14.

Mittal is accused of demanding bribe from a man for not including his name in a case registered with the SOG under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.

The ACB took a warrant from court on Sunday and started search operations at five premises of Mittal, including her office and residence in Ajmer, a flat in Jaipur, a resort and farm house in Udaipur and ancestral house in Jhunjhunu.

After searching her office, the ACB team took her in detention and left Ajmer for Jaipur for questioning.

According to the ACB sources, the officer was mounting pressure on the complainant through her middleman.

The middleman took the complainant to Mittal’s farm house in Udaipur and demanded Rs 2 crore for not including his name in the case. When the complainant expressed his inability to pay the sum, the middleman asked for Rs 1 crore and gave him two day’s time, the sources said.

The complainant, however, reached the ACB office in Jaipur and lodged a complaint, they said.

”Meanwhile, after the additional SP issued a notice to him, the complainant reached her office in Ajmer where she demanded Rs 50 lakh to settle the matter. She said that he will have to give Rs 25 lakh on the same day and the remaining Rs 25 lakh after February 11,” the sources said.

After some time, the same middleman called the complainant and asked him to give Rs 25 lakh at the Ajmer bypass. However, the middleman did not show up.

“The trap failed because the middleman did not come to take the money following which a case was registered against the additional SP for demanding the bribe,” the officer said.
