Waghmare demanded the sum to offer a positive opinion in hearing on confirmation of bail before the Bombay High Court, Nagpur bench. Arora and his family had been booked for torture and harassment on a complaint by his wife.

The High Court had granted Arora ad-interim bail and fixed hearing for the confirmation later this week. Fed up by the constant demands, Arora approached the ACB and offered her the initial installment amount as per the trap set by the agency.
