Assistant Police Inspector

The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Thane has made a significant breakthrough with the arrest of an assistant police inspector stationed at the Narpoli police station. The officer, identified as Sharad Baban Pawar, aged 37, was apprehended while accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh. This arrest underscores the ongoing battle against corruption within law enforcement agencies.

According to officials familiar with the case, Pawar had allegedly demanded a bribe amounting to Rs 5 lakhs from a complainant whose son was involved in a murder case under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code. The complainant approached the ACB after Pawar purportedly promised to assist in his son’s legal matters and mitigate the charges against him.

The Superintendent of Police at ACB Thane, Sunil Lokhande, confirmed Pawar’s arrest and detailed the operation that led to it. Pawar was caught red-handed in his office at the police station while accepting Rs 2 lakhs from the complainant. A case has been registered under the relevant sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, and investigations are ongoing.

This incident not only highlights the vigilance of the ACB in combating corruption but also serves as a reminder of the importance of upholding integrity within law enforcement agencies to maintain public trust and confidence.

In a separate case, the Navi Mumbai cyber crime police have initiated action against five individuals involved in a cryptocurrency trading fraud. A 59-year-old businessman from Navi Mumbai fell victim to the scheme, losing a substantial sum of Rs 60.23 lakhs after being enticed into investing in forex and cryptocurrency trading for promised high returns.

The victim, a resident of Kalamboli area engaged in the logistics business, was contacted by the accused who allured him with lucrative investment opportunities. Subsequently, the victim invested Rs 64,70,024 through various channels provided by the fraudsters.

In response to the victim’s complaint, the cyber crime police registered a case against the perpetrators under sections 419 (cheating by personation) and 420 (cheating) of the Indian Penal Code.

These incidents underscore the need for enhanced vigilance and awareness among the public regarding fraudulent schemes, as well as the importance of robust mechanisms to tackle corruption and financial crimes in society.
