Phulbani, July 27: Continuing with their crackdown against corrupt officials, Vigilance sleuths on Tuesday caught Gudari Revenue Inspector Sunil Kumar Digal while accepting bribe from a person.
As per the report, one Prakash Chandra Dehury of Gudari area had visited the local Tehsil officer in connection with partition of a piece of land owned by him a few days back. After he approached Digal who works there as Revenue Inspector, the latter demanded a bribe of Rs 3,000 to execute the partition in revenue records.
After Prakash took the matter to local Vigilance unit and lodged a case against Digal, a trap was laid and the demand of money by the RI was recorded. Subsequently, the complainant was told to hand over the currency dipped in invisible dye to Digal. The same was recovered from the latter’s pocket by Vigilance sleuths who waited outside his office.
As the dye revealed its colour in water, Digal was taken into custody by the officials and his residence and office was raided.
He has been forwarded to court today.
