Press Trust of India  |  Jaipur 

A village revenue officer was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly taking a bribe in Rajasthan's Sawai Madhopur district, an official said.

The accused, Lal Samariya (33), allegedly demanded a bribe of Rs 3,200 from the complainant, Virendra Singh, in a land-mutation case, said Deputy Superintendent of Police (Anti Corruption Bureau) Bhairu Lal.

The DSP said the complaint against Samariya was verified last Thursday when the accused accepted a bribe of Rs 1,000 from Singh.

On Tuesday, a trap was laid by the ACB officials and Samariya was caught red-handed, Lal said.

A case has been registered against the revenue official under relevant sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act and an investigation is underway, the officer added.
