Balasore: A Home Guard posted in the Basta Police Station (PS) was caught red-handed by the State Vigilance sleuths while he was accepting bribe from a person for allegedly facilitating him with the required clearance for obtaining passport.
The arrested Home Guard has been identified as Chandramohan Nayak and he was assigned with the job of data entry in the PS.
He fell into the Vigilance dragnet while illegally receiving Rs 600 from the passport applicant.
Nayak is allegedly a habitual offender in this respect as complaints galore against him since he has been assigned as data entry operator.
Basing on such complaints, the Vigilance sleuths laid a trap into which the corrupt Home Guard fell into eventually.
