An assistant executive engineer of the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board in Coonoor near Udhagamandalam was on Wednesday sentenced to one year imprisonment by a court for taking a bribe of Rs 1,000 in 2003.

Sub-court judge M Thangavelu found Rajendraprasad guilty of taking the bribe to give power connection to a new building while he was working as an assistant engineer 13 years ago.

According to the prosecution, on a complaint from the building contractor, Directorate of Vigilance and Anti Corruption had laid a trap and arrested the official while accepting the bribe.
