Vijay Borde (38) who works in the passport verification section at the Chinchwad police station, allegedly demanded Rs 1,000 from a 25-year-old passport applicant for allowing the verification process to go through.
Suraj Kannake registered a complaint with the ACB yesterday. Police Inspector Prakash Shinde said Borde had earlier taken Rs 3,000 from Kannake’s landlord Sunil Bhagwat, after he found out that the former did not make out a rent agreement with the complainant.
“Borde threatened Bhagwat with action for not making a rental agreement with the tenant and took Rs 3,000 from him,” Shinde said. After Kannake approached the ACB office, a trap was laid and Borde was arrested yesterday evening while accepting the bribe amount from the complainant.
