Officials of the Commission to investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption yesterday arrested the Principal of a leading girls’ school in Galle for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs.100,000 from a mother for the admission of her child to Grade 1.

“It was further reported that the respective Principal was caught red handed at her office in school while she was allegedly obtaining Rs.100,000 from the mother as an advance of a bribe of Rs.300,000,” Galle Police said.
