New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Wednesday announced a helpline which he said will help trap government employees who demand bribes.

Kejriwal told the media that anyone who is asked to pay a bribe by any official in the capital should seek help on 2735 7169.

"This is a helpline number, not a complaint number," he said.

Once the details of the complainant is taken down, the anti-corruption wing of the Delhi administration will explain how to do a sting operation vis-a-vis the corrupt using the recording device of one's mobile phone.

"The idea is to inject fear among bribe seekers," Kejriwal said. "Now an officer demanding bribe won't know if you are recording him on your mobile phone or not."
