Rourkela, August 19:
An Upper Division (UD) clerk at the office of the Regional Labour Commissioner (RLC), Rourkela office came under CBI net while accepting a bribe Rs. 10,000/ from a local contractor, for issuing a labour license, here on Wednesday. He has been arrested and would be forwarded to CBI court, Bhubaneswar, on Thursday.
Sources said contractors working in Rourkela Steel Plant (RSP) need to submit a labour license from the Regional Labor Commissioner’s office for executing any job inside the plant. Accordingly, a contractor, who had applied for renewal of his labour license, had met UDC MR Bhusan and requested him to process his case. Bhusan reportedly demanded Rs. 10,000/ as his ‘normal charge’ for this job.
The contractor had informed the CBI office, following which a trap was laid. As soon as Bhusan received the money from the contractor on Wednesday, he was nabbed by CBI officials.
“We have arrested MR. Bhusan red-handed and recovered the cash from him,” said a CBI official here. “He would be forwarded to CBI court in Bhubaneswar on Thursday,” he added.
