SRIKAKULAM: The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) officials arrested the sub-registrar of Rajam, S Tavitayya, and his assistant, Venkata Ramana, for demanding and accepting bribe in return for an official favour from a person Tuesday.

According to Srikakulam DSP ACB A Rangaraju, complainant V Rambabu had taken a house loan from AGVB bank six years ago.

Despite finishing the loan about six months ago, Tavitayya refused to hand over the receipt of cancellation to Rambabu.

Tavitayya demanded Rs 10,000 bribe for providing the receipt. Upon constant negotiation the official settled for Rs 4,000.

Vexed up with the official’s treatment, Rambabu approached the ACB.

On Tuesday evening, Tavitayya accepted the bribe money of Rs 4,000 through his assistant Venkata Ramana, and was caught red-handedly by the ACB team led by Rangaraju.

The duo would be produced before court Wednesday.
