The (SDO) of Ambad and a middleman have been arrested tonight by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) officials on the charge of accepting a bribe of Rs 3 lakh from contractor.

Two sand-laden trucks were seized by the revenue officials, following which the contractor approached the SDO to get those released, Deputy Superintendent of Police (ACB) Pravin More said.

Of Rs 3 lakh bribe amount, Rs 50,000 was in new currency notes and Rs 2.50 lakh in demonetised Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes, the ACB officer said, adding a case has been registered in this regard.
