CHENNAI: Sleuths of the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption (DVAC) on Tuesday arrested a sub-inspector of the Mylapore all-women police station while accepting a bribe of Rs 500 from a woman.

According to DVAC sources, SI Anitha demanded Rs 500 from Aparna for helping her out in a case of marital discord. Aparna’s husband had deserted her and she had been living alone. In this regard, she lodged a petition with the Mylapore all-women police station. Anitha then contacted Aparna and demanded a bribe for processing the complaint.

Aparna then approached DVAC sleuths who decided to lay a trap for the SI. As per their suggestion, Aparna went to the station and handed over the money to the SI who was then nabbed in the act.

DVAC officials then carried out searches in her house in Mylapore but did not seize anything, sources said. Anitha was later produced before a magistrate and remanded in judicial custody.
