The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Saturday apprehended two government officials while they were demanding and accepting bribes. The suspects, a Tahsildar and a Revenue Inspector from T Sundupalli Mandal in Annamayya district, and a Village Revenue Officer from Satyavolu village in Prakasam district, were subsequently arrested and presented before the special ACB court.

The incident came to light after a complaint was filed by G Prabhanjan Reddy of Erramanenipalem village, near T Sundupalli Mandal in Annamayya district. He had approached the Mandal Tehsildar, Gadapala Ravi, and the Revenue Inspector seeking assistance with the mutation of his agricultural land. However, instead of providing help, the officers allegedly demanded a bribe of Rs. 80,000. Promptly reporting the misconduct, the complainant reached out to the ACB, leading to the registration of a case. The ACB officials acted swiftly and apprehended the accused officers while accepting Rs. 40,000 as part of the bribe.

In a separate incident, G Shankar of Ganapavaram village, near Nadendla Mandal in Palnadu district, reported being subjected to bribery by Village Revenue Officer P Venkateswarlu from Satyavolu village secretariat at Racharla Mandal in Prakasam district.
