Singh had, on Friday, driven off after CBI sleuths attempted to nab him while receiving ₹10, 000 as bribe; with two of the investigators hanging on to his car attempting to stop it.

Hindustan Times has accessed CBI transcripts of conversations between Rajbir Singh and Sitaram, a meat shop owner and resident of Ram Darbar, who had accused him of demanding a bribe. The SI in the transcripts can be heard asking for ₹15,000 to drop the case against his employee, Shatrughan of Hallomajra, in a theft case.

Following what was reportedly a “deal” with the SHO at the police station, Rajbir Singh was asking for the money at the behest of the SHO, the transcripts reveal. (See box)

The SI’s conversation with Sitaram also points towards a bigger conspiracy involving lower rung policemen collecting money at the behest of their seniors, an angle which CBI sources who do not want to be identified say they will probe.

Giving details of the case the CBI sources said Sitaram came to criminal force to deter a public servant from discharging his duties) after a CBI complaint.

CBI too has booked him under Sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act with its team present at the Sector 31 police station till 3 am on Saturday; which left with files related to more than a dozen cases of theft and sexual harassment handled by the SI.

“We are inquiring into the role of the SHO,” senior superintendent of police (SSP) Nilambari Jagdale, said confirming Rajbir Singh’s suspension. CBI as well as the local police are conducting raids to arrest him.
