Srinagar: A government official was arrested
for allegedly taking bribe in Pulwama district of south Kashmir, State Vigilance Organisation (SVO) officials said Thursday.
District Manager incharge of Scheduled Caste and Schedule
Tribe Development Corporation Gul Mohammad Hajam was caught
while allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 2,000 at his office
yesterday, they said.

The SVO laid a trap after receiving a written complaint by
Bashir Ahmad Gujar, a resident of Tral, that the officer was
demanding bribe to release a loan of Rs 95,000 sanctioned in
his favour.
Gujar had applied for the grant of Rs one lakh as loan in
the office of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Development
Corporation, Pulwama, in 2009 for running a grocery shop.
