The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) sleuths on Monday arrested an official of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) while he was accepting a bribe of ` 5,000 from a loan applicant. Bhimsen Nayak, a district coordinator with KVIC, had sought the gratification for granting  ` five lakh loan to Nilakantha Mansingh, a resident of Begunia in Khurda.

After the CBI was tipped off about it, a trap was laid and Nayak was arrested. He will be produced before a court on Tuesday.
