Chandigarh, June 13

The State Vigilance Bureau today claimed to have nabbed a sales tax inspector posted at the Sales and Taxation office, Kotkapura, in Faridkot district red-handed for accepting a bribe of Rs 25,000.

An official spokesperson for the Vigilance Bureau said Sales Inspector Jaspal Handa was nabbed while accepting Rs 25,000 from complainant Ankur Garg of Dhillon Colony, Faridkot.

The complainant, a scrap dealer, had approached the VB, alleging that Handa had been threatening him and demanding a bribe of Rs 50,000 to exempt his firm from tax penalty and the deal was struck at Rs 25,000.

After verifying his information, the VB team laid a trap and the accused sales inspector was arrested on the spot.

A case under the Prevention of Corruption Act has been registered against the accused.
