Bangalore, Jun 17 (UNI) Sleuths of the Karnataka Lok Ayukta today arrested two officials of the Commercial Tax Department of Chintamani while accepting bribe for showing an official favour.
According to a Lok Ayukta release here, CTO Officer Dorai allegedly demanded Rs one lakh from M/s Indian Madras Motor Proprietor S Raghvendra for not booking a case against him.
However, after a stiff bargaining, Dorai agreed to accept Rs 25,000.
But Raghavendra, who was not willing to pay the money, approached the Lok Ayukta, who laid a trap and caught Dorai and CTO Inspector Rajanna red-handed.
