Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, May 22: Police personnel of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), on Tuesday May 21, took into custody two persons who demanded bribe of Rs 10,000 for handing over cheque representing subsidy amount sanctioned by the government.

The arrested persons are Sridhar Bhandary, district manager of Minorities Development Corporation, and clerk, Rahil. They were produced in the court whereupon the court remanded them to 15 days judicial custody, ACB officials stated.

Sharat Pinto had applied to Minorities Development Corporation for running an industry. He had been sanctioned subsidy amount of one lac rupees. Sridhar Bhandary reportedly demanded bribe of Rs 10,000 for the cheque to be handed over to him. Sharat Pinto said he was not agreeable as the amount demanded was on a higher side. After some discussions, he had agreed to pay Rs 7,000 to Bhandary, it is reported. Pinto in the meanwhile, reported the matter to ACB officials.

ACB officials conducted the raid on Tuesday when the bribe amount was being handed over. The said amount of Rs 7,000 was found in the table drawer of Bhadnary. Rahil, who was instrumental in negotiating the deal, was also arrested and booked.

The raid was conducted by deputy superintendent of police, Manjunath, inspectors, Yogeesh Kumar Mohan Kottary and Satish BS, under the guidance of ACB superintendent of police, Uma Prashanth.

    More and more people should complain and more raids like this. At least openly asking for bribe can be stopped. Shame to see the govt. employees begging for bribe money.

    Handing over cheque?

    I thought Gujju-bhai had promised to do direct transfers to the beneficiaries. Perhaps he was speaking of the beneficiaries in Gujju-land.

    Whichever department that deems for Minorities should be held from that particular community/Religion. Why a Bhandary heads it.

    This officer was very rude while I went to seek information about Ganga Kalyan scheme and it's implementation. Our borewell was sanctioned in the year of 2017 under Ganga Kalyan and still borewell is not dug. When I went enquire about this he was very rude and showed unkindly behavior. I think he was expecting bribe from me.
    He has also put a note outside of his office not to carry any mobiles inside his office and he has no camera inside his office.
    Hats off to ACB. Kindly investigate and we will support you.
