The ACB officials caught red-handed the Gudivada Municipality Commissioner N.Pramod Kumar while accepting a bribe of Rs.1.10 lakh from a contractor at his office.
ACB officials say that the accused had been demanding a share of about 3 per cent of the bill value as bribe from Koya Venkata Akka Rao who executed several works worth Rs.37 lakh a few years ago. The Commissioner asked the victim to pay Rs.1.10 lakh for doing the official favour of issuing pass orders for the pending bills. Vexed over the demand, he approached the ACB and lodged a complaint.
ACB DSP V.V.Prasada Rao and his team laid a trap and caught the official accepting the bribe in the morning. He was arrested and would be produced in the court on Friday.
