Air force engineer in CBI net for bribe

P.K. Srivastava, a garrison engineer at the Awantipora air force base, was caught by CBI sleuths while accepting the bribe money Thursday evening.

The contractor, according to police, had constructed a building inside the air base and had been forced to approach the CBI as the Srivastava was not releasing his payment and was demanding a bribe.

"Srivastava had been withholding the contractor’s bill for quite some time in order to force him to come forward with the gratification," a police officer in south Kashmir told IANS.

"Around Rs.7 lakh were also recovered from the office of the engineer inside the air force base," he added.
