£ 1,15,000 of unrecorded cash was confiscated from him as a surprise check on RTO’s premises
Police Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) deputy superintendent Kulasekhar Reddy said a report was sent to the director general of the ACB on Tuesday of the unrecorded cash from the RTO premises.
During a surprise inspection of the premises on Tuesday evening, officers confiscated £ 1.15,000 of unrecorded cash from the Assistant Motor Vehicle Inspector (AMVI) car and an additional £ 50,320 from the office.
The ACB DPO expressed its displeasure that despite the verbal complaint, people did not complain in writing about the alleged corrupt practices of employees in the Deputy Transport Commissioner’s office.
“We recommended action for the department after a thorough investigation into the alleged financial gratifications the AMVI had sought through some agents. If someone had submitted a written complaint, we could have referred them back and filed a case, but unfortunately nobody came forward, ”said the DSP.
The ACB officials also checked the CCTV footage from the DTC office complex.
Meanwhile, Deputy Transport Commissioner N. Sivaram Prasad said The Hindu There was no room for outsiders (agents) to interfere in the work, but promised to open an internal investigation into the AMVI mentioned in the ACB’s report. He said that when someone did something among the agents, it was difficult for them to keep an eye on them.
