Mumbai: A former police inspector attached to the Maharashtra ATS was on Monday convicted in a bribery case by a special Prevention of Corruption Act court and sentenced to two years` imprisonment in a bribery case.

The court convicted Arun Khanvilkar and his two associates -- Chetan Desai and Sanjay Kakkar -- for taking money from Manoj Singh in return for not booking him in a fake case.

It also imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh on Khanvilkar and Rs 50,000 on Kakkar and Desaid and jailed them for 18 months.

According to the prosecution, Khanvilkar had raided a club in December, 2009, and had picked up Singh and taken him to an ATS unit.

Singh paid Rs 5 lakh and later filed a case with ACB. On February 4, 2010, Desai was arrested while accepting money from Singh on behalf of Khanvilkar.

On the basis of Desai`s interrogation, Khanvilkar and Kakkar were arrested the next day.

During the trial, public prosecutor Sheela Jamdhar examined seven witnesses to prove the case.
