Bandipora, Mar 09: The member of District Development Council (DDC) from Bandipora's Arin constituency on Wednesday alleged that the recently arrested technical assistant at his block was not involved in any bribery but was falsely framed by someone.
Talking to reporters here at Bandipora, the DDC member Ghulam Mohi-ud-din Rather said that five Panchayat bodies of his constituency came and convinced that the technical assistant Showket Ahmad Lone who was arrested for allegedly demanding and accepting bribe from a contractor was not involved in any of the bribery cases.
He also alleged that there seems to be a conspiracy to entrap him as he was not involved in any bribery while nothing was recovered from him, of which I myself am an eyewitness. "Although I called the complainant today and he made it clear that he had made a mistake besides, he has no work in the said block, " he said, adding that he further appealed to the ACB to investigate the matter thoroughly.
On last Monday, ACB had said it trapped and arrested Showket and Irfan Yousuf Bhat (Tout), at Rural Development Department Block Arin, for demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs 18000 for preparing bills from a contractor.
