According to ACB officials, Kannaji had demanded Rs 2,500 for an official favour to deliver land-title passbook and title deed after mutation of the land in the name of the complainant K Lakshman, a farmer.
After Lakshman's request, Kannaji allegedly asked for a Rs 2,000 bribe to perform the task. Unable to bear the harassment, Lakshman informed the ACB officials who caught Kannaji red-handed, while accepting Rs 2,000 in cash from the farmer, ACB Deputy Superintendent of Police M Venkata Rao said.
The accused was produced before the judge for ACB cases. The case is being investigated.
