Bokaro (Jharkhand): The vigilance officials today arrested a Gram Rozgar Sevak (GRS) for allegedly accepting bribe from a person engaged in digging a well, sanctioned under government funds, at Chandrapura block of Bokaro district, a vigilance official said here.

A vigilance team headed by Deputy Superintendent of Police Anup Hembram caught the GRS, Rajesh Kumar Diwedi, while he was allegedly receiving Rs 1500 from Parmeshwar Mahato, who got the work worth Rs 1.58 lakh at Alargo village under the block, Hembram told reporters here.

The trap was laid after Mahato registered a complaint with the vigilance department charging Diwedi with demanding a cut on the first installment of Rs 31,000 released for the work, he added.
Gram Rogar Sevaks are appointed by the administration to oversee programmes taken up under funds allotted to the public representatives for development of their respective constituencies.
