A team of officials of Bribery and Corruption Commission came from Colombo arrested him two weeks ago in his office in Trincomalee while in the act of allegedly committing the offence.

Mr.V.Ramakamalan, Trincomalee Magistrate ordered remand for the suspect till April 24 when he was produced in the first instant and directed the Bribery and Corruption Commission officials to produce him in the Colombo Chief Magistrate's Court on that date.

The prosecution further submitted to court that the suspect was caught red-handed while accepting the bribe, legal sources said.
