Finance Minister Manpreet Badal Thursday caught two traffic policemen taking bribe from some commuters while he was on his way to Chandigarh from Ferozepur via Ludhiana.
The incident happened at Doraha near Ludhiana bypass when the minister, whose vehicle was not having any beacon, noticed two policemen taking bribe from some commuters.
Manpreet stopped his vehicle immediately and called the two policemen for an explanation. Later, his assistant shot a video of the policemen confessing to the wrongdoing and pleading guilty, which was submitted to Ludhiana police commissioner. SSP (Khanna) Rajjit Singh Hundal said that both policemen had been suspended and a departmental inquiry initiated against them.
