Acting on a complaint, a vigilance team headed by the Superintendent of Police (SP) Upendra Prasad Singh laid a trap and caught Siwan`s Civil Surgeon Dr Chandrashekhar Prasad "red-handed" as he took Rs 50,000 bribe at his official residence from a Primary Health Centre (PHC) Assistant, Director General of Police (Vigilance) P.K.
