HYDERABAD: Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) officials arrested Shaikpet Tahsildar Ch. Sujatha in the Banjara Hills land bribery case and she was taken to Osmania Hospital for medical checkup.
Telangana ACB officials have been interrogating Sujatha from Monday in a land bribery case worth Rs 50 crore in Hyderabad. She will be taken to the court and produced before a magistrate.
Officials said that Sujatha could not answer the questions of ACB over Rs 30 lakh cash that was found in her residence.
ACB sleuths had caught a revenue inspector on the spot while taking bribe of Rs 15 lakh from Syed Abdul Khalid who has 4,865 square yards of land in Banjara Hills. Following that, officials started questioning tehsildar Sujatha over the case from Monday and raided her residence on Sunday for evidence. They found Rs 30 lakh, gold and other valuables from her house.
Banjara Hills SP Ravi Nayak has already been arrested for demanding Rs three lakh from Khalid and accepted Rs 1.5 lakh as a bribe in connection with the case.
Even, the tehsildar had filed two complaints of encroachment against Abdul in Banjara Hills police station. When Abdul met Sujatha she sent him to a revenue official who demanded Rs 30 lakh from Abdul. He then approached ACB over the case which started probing into it.
