The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) laid a trap on Tuesday to arrest assistant sub-inspector (ASI) of Punjab Police Bhupinder Singh. The trap was laid by the CBI, after a complaint was filed by the owner of Healthyway Immigrations, Amit Kakkar.
Reportedly, ASI Bhupinder, at present posted in Jalandhar, had allegedly blackmailed the complainant saying that he had received a complaint from someone against the immigration firm of the complainant.
"The complainant had alleged that the ASI had been blackmailing the him for almost a month. He had been asking him (Kakkar) to give him Rs 50,000, and that he would sort out a complaint made by a Jalandhar
resident, who had apparently alleged that the firm had duped him off a certain amount by not helping the person in the immigration formalities," said a CBI source.
On Tuesday, the ASI reportedly called up the complainant and told him that he was in Chandigarh, and asked him to pay the money demanded by him (ASI). However, Kakkar approached the CBI and a trap was laid. The ASI entered the Healthyway Immigrations office, Sector 42, at 5 pm and he was arrested by CBI sleuths around 6 pm.
The ASI had allegedly demanded Rs 50, 000, but the complainant had negotiated to Rs 45,000. CBI officials arrested the ASI in the office of the immigration firm soon after he took the money.
Kakkar, a Mohali resident, was also booked in an immigration racket that was unearthed on August 13, 2011 after the British embassy in New Delhi informed the UT Police that an immigration company based in the city was issuing fake bank guarantees and documents for immigration.
The police had then raided the office of the company in Sector 42 and unearthed one of the biggest immigration rackets in the region. Kakkar was arrested by the UT police and the case is at present under trial in a lower court.
