A special court in Chandigarh convicted on Wednesday a 2008-batch IPS officer Desh Raj in a case of bribery, CBI spokesperson said in New Delhi.
"The Special Judge, CBI Cases, UT, Chandigarh has today convicted Desh Raj, IPS, then SP (City), UT, Chandigarh in a bribery case. The quantum of sentence will be announced on August 10, 2018," the official said.
The case was registered against Desh Raj on a complaint of an inspector posted at Sector 26, Chandigarh.
"It was alleged that the accused had demanded Rs 5 lakh as illegal gratification from the complainant for showing favour in an enquiry against him. CBI laid a trap and caught the accused while demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs one lakh as the first installment," the spokesperson said.
He said the agency had filed a charge sheet on July 11, 2013 in the court of Special Judge, CBI Cases, UT, Chandigarh.
