The CBI has arrested a Deputy General Manager of NBCC for allegedly receiving a bribe of Rs 2.30 lakh from a company working to complete projects under the Prime Minister Gramin Sadak Yojna in Shillong, officials said Thursday. It is alleged that Sagir Ahmed, Deputy General Manager of Navratna government enterprise NBCC, had allegedly demanded Rs 80,000 for three roads -- Rs 25,000 each plus Rs 5,000 -- built by JC Infra Corporation, they said.
