A Revenue Inspector working in Karimnagar Municipal Corporation (KMC) was caught red-handed while accepting a bribe of Rs 30,000 for some official task, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) said.

ACB Deputy Superintendent of Police, T Sudershan, said the accused revenue inspector was identified as Kareemullah Shah Khan.

"Khan has been postponing the allocation of house number to a newly-constructed apartment. He demanded Rs 30000 from its owner for the task, who approached the ACB," Sudershan said.

Accordingly, Kareemullah was caught red-handed while accepting the bribe from Narsaiah in the municipal office this evening.

A case was registered and Kareemullah was arrested. He will be produced before a special in Karimnagar tomorrow, the officer added.
