The ACB sleuths caught red handed the sub-registrar (In-charge), Bodhan, Srinivas Reddy while he was accepting a bribe of Rs. 12,000 from a farmer N. Srinivas of Amdapur in the mandal for the mutation of his agriculture land, at the SRO, Bodhan on Wednesday.

According to Deputy SP, ACB, B. Prathap Kumar, the farmer and his siblings distributed the ancestral property among themselves recently and approached the SRO for registration and completion of other procedure.

The SRO demanded money for doing the official favour and made him move from one section to another.

Vexed at the red tape, the farmer informed the ACB. “We caught him while he was accepting the bribe through his friend Y. Raju who was sitting opposite him at the table.

They two were taken into custody and sent to the ACB court for remand,” said the Deputy SP.
