The Madhya Pradesh Lokayukta police arrested a government lady gynaecologist on Tuesday for accepting a bribe of Rs.2,000 from a man for his wife’s cesarean delivery in the neighbouring Dhar district.

Acting on a tip-off, the Lokayukta police caught gynaecologist Surekha Jain who is posted at Dhamnod Community Health Centre, about 100 km from here, for accepting Rs.2,000 from Suresh Chouhan at her official residence, Lokayukta sources said.

Earlier, she had demanded a bribe of Rs.5,000 through the nurse Sarla for conducting a delivery procedure, but settled for Rs.2,000 later.
