ACB arrest Nashik talathi for taking bribe
Nashik: Sleuths from the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) here have arrested Harish Lasmanna Atwar, a talathi from Shivde on Monday for allegedly taking Rs 1,500 as bribe from a person for making entry in the 7/12 extract.
A team led by Deputy Superintendent of Police Vijay Jadhav caught Atwar red-handed while taking the money near Lucky Tea Stall at Sangamner Naka in Sinnar.
“The complainant had approached the talathi office in the village for making the entries of his mother and uncle of these plots in the 7/12 extract,” the official said.
The official said Atwar had demanded Rs 2,000 from the complainant for making the entries. Atwar had later agreed on Rs 1,500. The complainant then approached the ACB office and lodged a complaint against Atwar.
After confirming the bribe demand, the ACB laid a trap and caught Atwar red-handed while accepting the money.
