Dehra Dun: A Junior Engineer of the irrigation department here has been arrested for allegedly giving a bribe of Rs 50,000 to an investigating officer of Lokayukta office here, official sources Wednesday said.

Jaiprakash Singh, a native of district Devaria in Uttar Pradesh, was caught red-handed by a vigilance team when he was giving the bribe to Mansingh Rawat just outside the Lokayukta office here last evening.

The JE offered the bribe to Rawat to give him a clean chit in an inquiry related to irregularities in the construction of streams in Tehri Garhwal district where he was posted.

Rawat complained to the vigilance when the JE made repeated phone calls to him and pressurised him to take the bribe for preparing a false inquiry report giving the JE clean chit.
