2 IAF engineers caught accepting bribe
Nashik:Two Indian Air Force (IAF) engineers were on Wednesday arrested for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 50,000 from a contractor in Nashik, CBI officials said.
Rajendra Kakkar and Shashikant Patil, posted at Ojhar near Nashik, were caught while taking the bribe amount from the contractor in a hotel, an official of the CBI's anti-corruption bureau said tonight.
The contractor had completed his job related to some project with the Air Force and was awaiting the payment of his bills, the official said.
The duo, however, demanded Rs 70,000 to clear his bills. The contractor agreed to pay the amount and in the meantime lodged a complain with the CBI.
Accordingly a trap was laid in the Nashik hotel and the engineers were caught this evening while accepting Rs 50,000 as the first instalment, he added.
