He demanded Rs 5,000 bribe from the employee, Girija, to give her a clean chit. Nagaraj had threatened to ensure punishment if she failed to bribe him. Girija’s husband, Somashekhar, lodged a complaint with the Lokayukta who decided to trap the DySP. As per Nagaraj’s directive, Somashekhar met him at his office on Wednesday evening and handed over the money. The Lokayukta sleuths entered Nagaraj’s office when he was receiving the money and arrested him.
