Kothagudem: A junior assistant at Mulkalpalli tahsildar office in the district was caught red-handed by ACB while he was receiving a bribe of Rs 6000 from a person on Wednesday.
The accused, U Ravindra Kumar demanded an amount of Rs 28,000 to issue a caste certificate to an auto driver Sadam Srinivas and his daughter of Pogallapalli in Mulakalapalli mandal.
As the complainant expressed his inability to pay that amount, the final deal was set at Rs 6,000. As the complainant was not keen on paying the bribe, he approached the ACB officials, who laid a trap and caught the junior assistant when he was receiving the money from Srinivas.
The bribe amount was seized from the accused, who was arrested and would be produced by ACB court in Hyderabad, said ACB officials.
