Jammu: Two government officials, including an executive engineer, have been arrested after they were caught accepting a bribe of Rs 45,000 here, an Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) spokesperson said on Saturday.

Executive Engineer Rajinder Kumar and an account officer of SAMAGRA (Education division, SSA-RMSA, division III-IV) Jammu were booked under the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Act and searches were also conducted at their residences, the official said.

He said the ACB laid a trap on Friday after receipt of a complaint alleging that the two officials are demanding illegal gratification to release pending bills worth Rs 15 lakh for works undertaken by a construction company.
