Kene had been on sick leave for nearly three months, and had recently resumed duty, police said. His superiors had asked him to obtain a medical certificate, declaring him fit, they said. During medical examination, conducted by Dr Shegaonkar, Kene was found colour-blind, police said. Dr Shegaonkar then asked Kene for Rs 10,000 to give him a certificate declaring him fit.
The deal was later finalised for Rs 4,000, and Dr Shegaonkar had asked Kene to come to his residence to pay the money. Kene, however, lodged a complaint with ACB, which laid a trap and caught the doctor, police added.
