4, including a councilman, detained for corruption in Rajasthan

Four people, including a councilman, were arrested for allegedly accepting bribes in separate incidents on Tuesday, a spokesman for the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) said.

Rohit Bairagi, a councilor in Balchand Pada, Bundi Municipality, was caught while accepting Rs 1.50 lakh from the plaintiff, the spokesperson said.

The plaintiff alleged that he wanted permission to undertake construction work on his house. To achieve this, Bairagi had demanded Rs 1 lakh for himself and another Rs 50,000, saying the money should be paid to the chairman of the municipality.

In Jaipur, a junior assistant from the Rajasthan Nursing Council was arrested while accepting a bribe of Rs 1.90 lakh. The person who gave him the money was also arrested, ACB said.

Defendant Nand Kishor Sharma is said to have demanded the bribe from a college instead of relaxing recognition standards, seat allocation and inspection.

In the third case, a chartered accountant was arrested for accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh on behalf of officials in the income tax department.

Defendant Puneet Mohnot allegedly demanded Rs 5 lakh from a businessman to settle a case filed against his company.
