AP forensic officer takes bribe over rape case
Mr Farooq, who allegedly rape an American woman, alerted the Anti-Corruption Bureau(ACB) after Mr Venkanna demanded Rs 15,000 for the early release of the DNA report.
“Venkanna called one of my friends and demanded money for giving the report in our favour. However, we refused. He again called us after some days and said the DNA test had yielded negative results. As the room in which the rape took place was sealed and would be opened after the DNA report was submitted, I asked him for the early report submission," said Mr Farooq.
ACB officials recovered money from Mr Venkanna"s pockets and the file pertaining to the case has also been seized.
Sources said he will produce before the Special Judge for SPE and ACB cases.
