MC employee held taking bribe

Bribe case
The employee of the Municipal Corporation in the custody of the Vigilance Bureau in Ludhiana on Monday.

The Vigilance Bureau today nabbed an employee of the Municipal Corporation while he was accepting a bribe of Rs 13,500. He has been identified as Amarjit Singh, who is a baildar in the MC, and is posted in Zone C.

The complainant, Major Singh had filed a complaint with the Vigilance Bureau. He owns a house and he required TS-1 from the MC. When he visited the Zone C office, he met Amarjit who claimed himself a clerk and demanded Rs 25,000 as bribe to get his file prepared. However, the deal was stuck at Rs 15,000.

“Recently when I visited the MC office, Amarjit demanded Rs 15,000. But I pacified him by giving Rs 1,500 as advance. Amarjit then asked me to pay the remaining amount only then my documents will be prepared. Later, I came to know that Amarjit is not a clerk, rather he is just a baildar. I decided to teach him a lesson,” the complainant said.

After receiving the complaint, sleuths of the bureau laid a trap and nabbed Amarjit red-handed.
A case under section 7 and 13 (2) of PC Act has been registered against him.
