The ACB officials on Friday arrested a superintendent of the Pay and Accounts office on charge of accepting Rs. 9,000 bribe from a contractor.

The contractor had deposited Rs. 8.28 lakh with the government two years ago towards security after securing a contract for constructing a building on the Andhra Pradesh Police Academy premises. He completed the work and approached the P & A office for return of the security deposit when the accused Krishnamoorthy demanded bribe and asked the contractor to keep the amount in his office for the office watchman to collect it and hand it over to contract employee Arun Kumar.
