Andhra Pradesh: RPF Sub-Inspector given three-year jail over bribe

The Special Judge for CBI Cases on Wednesday sentenced Kondaveeti Mani Prasad, the then Sub-Inspector, Railway Protection Force (RPF), Guntur Division of South Central Railway, to three years of rigorous imprisonment and imposed a fine of ₹20,000 in a bribery case.

The CBI had registered a case against the accused on charges of bribery. It was alleged that Mani Prasad, then Sub-Inspector of RPF Guntur, demanded illegal gratification of ₹1 lakh initially from the complainant and later agreed to take ₹30,000 in order to not book a case against him.

The CBI laid a trap and caught the accused while he was accepting the bribe. After an investigation, a chargesheet was filed against the accused. The trial court found the accused guilty and convicted him.
