Moga, May 20

Sleuths of the Punjab Vigilance Bureau have arrested a Junior Engineer (JE) of Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) posted at Dharamkot sub-division here on Wednesday for accepting a bribe of Rs20,000 from a local farmer in return of sanctioning a new power transformer for his tubewell.

DSP, Vigilance, Kewal Krishan said Gurpreet Singh, a resident of Daburji village, was facing problems in running his tubewell due to voltage problem. Subsequently, he approached local officials of PSPCL to install a new transformer ahead of the paddy season.

JE Gulsher Singh demanded a sum of Rs35,000 from Gurpreet to get the latter's work done. Gurpreet gave Rs15,000 to the accused. However, later, he approached the VB officials and filed a complaint.

The VB officials caught the accused red-handed today when Gopi was paying the remaining amount to the JE. — TNS
