Assistant Sub-inspector (ASI) at the Area Police Office in Butwal Ram Prasad Poudel has been arrested red-handed receiving bribe on Thursday.

A special team of the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) apprehended ASI Poudel from a hotel in Butwal as he was receiving a bribe of Rs. 150,000, according to CIAA spokesperson Sridhar Sapkota.
