A policeman who was caught accepting a bribe – tries to destroy evidence by swallowing the money.
A police constable, who took Rs 1000 bribe, swallowed the cash after anti-corruption bureau sleuths caught him in the act on Saturday.
Constable Vijay Kalaskar who swallowed two Rs 500 notes claimed that he took the bribe on behalf of sub-inspector Madhavrao Shinde.
“When Kalaskar noticed that we were running towards him, he tried to flee but we nabbed him. He swallowed the currency notes. We took him to Government Medical College and Hospital for medical examination. The stomach wash, stool and urine of the constable would be sent for chemical analysis,” said Karmarkar.
Now, a stool test will decide the fate of a bribery case – that must be a first of its kind. Now we know exactly why the cops in India are better known as paise-khaane waale police force.
