Prosecutor caught while taking bribe

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Saturday arrested an assistant public prosecutor here for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 50,000 to 'settle' a case of cheating.

Prosecutor Priti Jagtap (39), who appeared at Andheri magistrate's court, allegedly demanded money from a man against whom a case of cheating had been registered.

She allegedly told him that if he paid her, she will ensure that the case was closed, an ACB official said.

After he approached the ACB, a trap was laid and Jagtap was arrested while allegedly taking the money.
