Constable Qadeer Ahmed, himself dismissed for being absent from duty, has filed a complaint against Constable Rameez Haider, who is an assistant in the office of Rawalpindi Operations Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP).
Ahmed said that Haider had demanded money in return for his reinstatement and had threatened him in case of non-payment.
Civil Lines Police booked Haider after Qadeer alleged that the former took Rs4,500 from him to save his job.
Qadeer was issued a show cause notice for being absent from duty for three months.
The complainant claimed that following his dismissal, Haider asked for another Rs2,000, saying he would try to help him get reinstated.
