The ACB said a hotelier had been locked in a land dispute with his brother and the latter recently filed a complaint against the former in Kuhi police station. The complaint related to alleged land encroachment by the hotelier.

When the complaint came before Kale and Chavhan, they approached the hotelier and sought a Rs 4.5 lakh bribe for not proceeding against him in the case filed by his brother, the anti-corruption agency said.

The hotelier agreed to pay the bribe and at the same time filed a complaint with the ACB (Nagpur) against the two police officials.

Based on the complaint, a trap was laid on Tuesday and the two police officials were caught accepting the first instalment of Rs 2 lakh from the hotelier, the ACB said.

However, Inspector Kale managed to escape from police custody while undergoing medical examination, but was apprehended this evening from Dhantoli area of the city, the ACB official said.
