"40-year-old Bahadur Ram Bhagat posted at Ratanpur police station was caught red handed accepting a bribe of Rs 5,000 from a man for releasing his family on bail and putting up their challan in connection with a case," the official said.
According to complainant Dheeraj Singh Thakur, a native of Kohtarai village, his wife had lodged a complaint against him, his father, mother and sister regarding a family dispute, after which they were arrested.
