A CBI court in Jodhpur today sentenced four-year rigorous imprisonment to a former assistant garrison engineer and a similar three-year term to another in a bribery case.
The court also slapped a fine of Rs 3,000 on Janardan Parab and a fine of Rs 2,000 on Vijay Kumar, both former assistant garrison engineers.
CBI had registered a case in June 2014 against Parab and Kumar, both working in MES, Military Station, Suratgarh of Rajasthan on complaint that they had demanded a bribe of Rs 80,000 from a person to pass his outstanding bills, said a CBI spokesperson.
A trap was laid and Parab was arrested while demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs 40,000 (Rs 20,000 for himself and rest for Kumar), the spokesperson said.
After completion of investigation, a charge sheet was filed in February 2015 against the duo.
The charges were framed in September 2015 following examination of 12 witnesses, the official added.
