The vigilance department's Gurgaon team took into custody sub-inspector Satish Dagar and assistant sub-inspector Roshan Lal from the Sector 14 market, a senior officer said.
Senior Superintendent of Police Yogendra Singh Nehra told IANS that Dagar was in-charge of Gurgaon's Sector 14 police post.
Police had raided an outlet in the area in August and found youngsters smoking hookah illegally. The outlet was owned by a Rahul Yadav but was run by a friend.
Rahul Yadav was booked for running the illegal hookah bar and granted bail by a court.
The two police officers reportedly demanded Rs.50,000 from Yadav to exclude his name from the first information report. They were taking the final part of the bribe amount when they got trapped.
