Shillong, Mar 27: A local court here has sentenced three persons, including a lawyer, for attempting to bribe a police officer with Rs 20 lakh, court officials said today. District and Sessions judge of Shillong Court Sudip Ranjan Sen recently convicted lawyer Panger Anok and two others -- Kauser Alam and Kamal Choudhury -- under the Prevention of Corruption Act 1988.

The accused tried to offer a bribe of Rs 20 lakh to former Khliehrait Sub-Division Circle Inspector TJ Synrem to get back about ten thousand kg of ganja, valued at Rs 1.90 crore in the international market, seized by police on December 29, 2005. The amount was also meant to secure the release of a person arrested under the NDPS Act and three oil tankers, which were used for transporting the ganja.
