A section officer of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) was caught red-handed by the sleuths of the Anti-Corruption Bureau.

Rudra Rajasree, (46), at Rajendranagar, and her assistant Ganasala Sripathi, (26), were nabbed by the police on Wednesday for demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs. 20,000. Ms. Rajasree directed Mr. Sripathi to collect the money to do an official favour in not issuing any further notice to the complainant for construction of his house building, an ACB release said.

Mr. Sripathi was found carrying the money in his pocket.
