In the trap case against head constable Parveen Kumar, who was caught red-handed while accepting Rs 10,000 in bribe, the Central Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday submitted a chargesheet in the court accusing him of corruption and destruction of evidence.

On August 30, Kumar, who was posted at Burail police post, was caught red-handed by CBI while accepting the bribe money from a Sector 45 resident, Jeet Singh, for letting off his son in a gambling case. Kumar managed to escape from CBI’s custody and ran into a crowded area near the police post. He was re-arrested after a chase.

In the process, Kumar allegedly handed over the bribe money to somebody. The CBI could not recover the marked currency from his possession. Thus, the CBI also added Section 201 (destruction of evidence) of the IPC against him in the chargesheet. The CBI has submitted the chargesheet under sections 7 and 13 (1) (d) read with 13 (2) of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
