ACB police on Saturday trapped Basavakalyan tahsildar while he was taking a bribe of Rs 10,000 from a photographer at his official residence in Bidar.
Panditrao Biradar was arrested by Gulbarga ACB SP Anitha Haddannavar and her team. Biradar had allegedly demanded Rs 10,000 from Gurulingaiah to clear his pending bills worth Rs 62,000 towards services during the recent zilla and taluk panchayat elections.
Gurulingaiah was hired by the administration to shoot the election proceedings. Not willing to give bribe, the photographer had filed a complaint with ACP police.
