The other four policemen were apprehended on Saturday, the official said.

All the seven arrested persons are currently in police remand, the official said.

The arrests were made in connection with a CID case registered on Thursday initially against seven police personnel of Bajali, including a deputy superintendent of police and two sub-inspectors.

Director general of police GP Singh had on Friday written on X, formerly Twitter, that the “case was registered after receiving a complaint of demand for money by some personnel of Bajali district” in the first week of August.
