Kakatpur BDO in Vigilance net

Bhubaneswar: Vigilance sleuths today arrested Kakatpur Block Development Office (BDO) Santosh Kumar Sahoo for taking Rs 18,000 as percentage.

He was caught red handed by the Puri vigilance sleuths while taking bribe from block junior engineer Subrat Barik, sources said.
