Jaipur: Rajasthan anti-corruption bureau (ACB) on Monday organized another major trap in Sikar district. The agency arrested the owner of Jagan Teachers Training (TT) College in Sikar after he was allegedly caught taking a bribe of Rs 20,000. The accused, Shravan Kumar Jat, was demanding bribe from a student to submit his attendance record to the Rajasthan University.

Shravan is a resident of Aloda in Dantaramgarh area of Sikar district. A complaint had been registered against one Prakash Bishnoi, a resident of Jodhpur district. Prakash is a second year BEd student in the college.

“Prakash told us that Shravan was demanding Rs 27,000 to submit his attendance record to the Rajasthan University which is mandatory to appear in the exam. We verified the complaint. During the verification, Shravan agreed to accept Rs 20,000. A trap was laid on Monday under the supervision of Add SP ACB Jodhpur Durg Singh,” said a senior ACB officer.

Prakash came to the collage and handed over the bribe money to Shravan. The college owner was arrested and booked under various section of the Prevention of Corruption Act.

It is the second major trap by ACB in the past one week. Recently, a senior section engineer of Railways was arrested for taking Rs 2000 bribe from a trackman.
