Kota: After 15 years of trial, an anti corruption court here has sentenced a former revenue accountant to four years in jail for taking bribe.
Special judge of Anti Corruption Court, Raghavendra Kaachwal, yesterday convicted Rambabu Sharma and also slapped a fine of Rs 10,000 on him.
Sharma was posted as revenue accountant at Indergarh revenue office of Nainwa sub division in Bundi district.
