On January 14, 2019, a truck owner, who was a resident of Palwal, filed a complaint against the State Vigilance Bureau (now called Anti-Corruption Bureau) against Singh, saying the ASI had demanded Rs 18,000 in lieu of releasing his truck which was seized by police.
The vigilance team at that time laid a trap and arrested ASI while accepting bribe.
