Two policemen have been arrested for accepting liquor as a bribe, the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption (CIABOC) said.
The policemen attached to the Gampaha Police and another individual had accepted two liquor bottles as a bribe.
According to a complaint made at CIABOC, the two policemen had sought the bribe after accusing a man of inappropriate behavior towards his female partner on the street.
The policemen had seized the driving licence of the man and the identity card of the woman and demanded a bribe to return it.
The man had then made a complaint at CIABOC.
The policemen and an intermediary were arrested while accepting the bribe.
