Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Revenue Divisional Officer of Nagarkurnool Jhonson was arrested by officials of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Friday evening on charges of demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs. 20,000 for permitting conversion of agricultural land for residential purpose.

A press release issued by the ACB here on Saturday said the tainted amount of Rs. 20,000 was recovered from Khaja Wahiuddin, a private driver, who accepted the amount on the instructions of the RDO. This followed a complaint by one Vikram Goud stating that the official had demanded illegal gratification.

The relevant file was seized from the office of the RDO and he, along with the driver, were arrested before being produced before the Additional Judge for SPE and ACB cases, here.

Meanwhile, ACB officials on Saturday ‘caught’ Mohd. Sharif Khan, Deputy Tahsildar of Veldurthy in Medak district while he was accepting a bribe of Rs.3,000 for doing official favour of issuing agricultural assessment certificate through his typist Makalallu Ranganath.
