MALACCA: Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) officers detained a 49-year-old chief inspector Monday on suspicion of accepting a RM600 bribe in relation to a court case. 

The chief inspector from the Tampin police station, who is a prosecuting officer, has been remanded for investigations until Saturday. 

It is believed that the chief inspector was detained following the detention of a 45-year-old lance corporal from Tampin police station by the ACA last Friday. 

The lance corporal was freed on bail after a statement was recorded. 

Sources said the lance corporal had demanded RM1,000 to "resolve" a case involving the seizure of karaoke sets from an entertainment centre. 

State ACA director Idrs Zaharudin confirmed the arrest of the chief inspector but refused to elaborate.
