Jeypore: Nandapur Child Development Project Officer (CDPO) Snigdharani Mishra, who was allegedly caught taking Rs 1.75 lakh bribe from a member of an SHG group last month, has been placed under suspension.
Koraput Collector Madhusudan Mishra suspended her following a directive from the state government.
The officer was caught red-handed by Vigilance sleuths while accepting the bribe money from SHG member Snehalata Dalapati of Badsan Sahi in Nandapur on October 27.
She had demanded the bribe to pass a bill of Rs 9,47,843 for the month of September and renew the agreement on the supply of THR (Take Home Ration) in favour of the SHG, the complainant had alleged.
Earlier in 2016, the officer was booked in a disproportionate assets case.
