A special court in Guwahati jailed a DRDA project director on a bribery charge on Thursday. The ACS daughter of former Bihar and Tripura governor was caught red handed by the vigilance and anti corruption department when she took bribe from an NGO worker for releasing fund for a road work in the city.
According to information, the department held her inside her office chamber after she accepted Rs 12,000 as bribe from Purna Chetry who works with Durga Sarovar Unnayan Samity.
Earlier she demanded money from the NGO for releasing the remaining amount for a road construction project. Then the NGO officials lodged the complaint with the department who laid the trap on Thursday.
On receiving the currency notes coated with a chemical, the vigilance officials asked her to wash the hands with water where her hands turned red because of the presence of the chemical on her palm. This was the best way to prove that the bribery allegations are correct.
