New Delhi:  Two MCD officials were today caught red-handed by sleuths of the Anti-Corruption Branch of Delhi government while accepting an alleged bribe of Rs 5,000 from a man in the Nangloi area here.

The two officials of the civic body identified as Mukesh Kumar and Lalit Rathi are both 'beldaars' posted in the Rohini division, said a police official.  

The complainant had approached ACB on Aug. 25 via the official helpline (011-23812905) and complained that the accused officials had sought a bribe of Rs 5,000 and were threatening to demolish his 50-square-yard under-construction house unless their demand was met, said MK Meena, Chief of the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB).

ACB officials today laid a trap and caught the duo red-handed while accepting the bribe. The two accused were arrested immediately and booked for hatching a criminal conspiracy and under relevant sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act, Meena added.
