A police chief has been arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
Inspector Mohammed Razaq, 51, based in Bolton, has been suspended from duty and bailed pending further inquires.
It is understood he was arrested after a lengthy investigation by Greater Manchester Police’s Internal Investigation Unit.
The probe centres on alleged meetings between Inspector Razaq and a solicitor. Another man – understood to be the solicitor – has also been arrested. The IIU is a covert squad of detectives based in Salford which investigates other police officers.
