Besides, a departmental inquiry was on against the sub-inspector after she along with another constable allegedly assaulted a man near Panaji in 2014 and took away his car.

"The DIG was relieved by the state government and he will report to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs, following allegations of bribery against him," Goa chief minister Manohar Parrikar told reporters in Panaji on Wednesday. "The departmental inquiries conducted by Gupta would be reviewed by a senior officer who will take charge of the matter," he said.

Parrikar said Gupta has been relieved but that does not mean he has been given a clean chit in the matter.
