Jaipur: The Rajasthan Anti-Corruption Bureau on Tuesday unearthed a racket in which the court clerk recruitment process was allegedly being influenced after money was taken from candidates.
Acting on complaints, the ACB conducted surveys at the houses of two employees of a lower court in Ajmer, two advocates and a private person and allegedly recovered cash of over Rs 17 lakh in all.
"The search operation was carried out today at the house of two brothers Rajesh Sharma and Hitesh Sharma, who are the employees of Ajmer`s Nasirabad court, and recovered Rs 14 lakh.
"Rs 1.8 lakh and Rs 80,000 were recovered from the houses of advocate Hemraj and advocate Bhagwan," IG ACB Smita Srivastava said here.
She said that the house of one Abdul Razzak was also searched and Rs 80,000 recovered.
