Four policemen, including an assistant inspector, have been booked for allegedly demanding a bribe from a man to save him from probe and imprisonment, a Maharashtra Anti-Corruption Bureau official said Sunday.
The complainant had been trapped a few days ago in an ACB operation in Jalgaon, over 400 kilometres from here, for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe, an official said.
"In return for the bribe, the policemen promised the complainant that he would not be sent to police custody for 10 days and no probe would be initiated into his property," the official added.
The complainant approached the Jalgaon unit of the ACB following which an offence was registered Sunday at Chalisgaon police station against the four policemen.
