VAO arrested for taking bribe from Engineer
Namakkal: A Village Administrative Officer has been arrested at Pottyreddypatti hamlet for taking Rs 3,500 as bribe from an engineer for a favour, police said.
They said the VAO had demanded the amount from the engineer, who wanted a nativity certificate for police verification as he had applied for a passport.
The official remained adamant in his demand despite the engineer`s request to consider his case favourably as his father had passed away. The man then informed Vigilance and anti-corruption officials, who laid a trap and nabbed him on Friday evening while he was receiving the money.
Police said the VAO, who used to demand money even for collecting applications, had been arrested in 2005 for receiving Rs 500 as bribe. The case is pending.
