The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) Friday arrested a panchayat samiti head for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 15,000 in Rajasthan's Jhalawar district.

Moharam Bai Tanwar, 30, head of Manhorethana panchyat samiti in Jhalawar, had demanded Rs 15,000 as bribe from a member of the samiti for sanctioning Rs 10 lakh for construction of an interlocking road in Bhojpura village, Assistant Superintendent of Police, ACB, Chandrasheel Thakur said.

Ratanlal Lodha, the member of the samiti, approached the ACB Thursday to register a complaint against Tanwar, following which a trap was laid Friday morning, he said.

Tanwar was caught accepting the money at her home, he said.
