Dhenkanal:  The Inspector-in-charge of Raasol PS under Dhenkanal district Santosh Pradhan was forwarded to court after being nabbed by the vigilance sleuths for accepting a bribe amount of Rs 50,000 from the owner of a crusher factory Ashutosh Mohanty.

Notably, the IIC had allegedly demanded the amount for some work illegally. A vigilance team from under the supervision of Vigilance DSP PK Patel had put a bait and were waiting for the accused.

They caught him red-handed while accepting the bribe money near a petrol pump from the victim.

The accused cop is now lodged in Dhenkanal jail and his hearing is on June 6.
