Gadag ACB police nab two NWKRTC officers while accepting a bribe

Gadag: On Thursday, the Anti-Corruption Bureau‘s sleuths nabbed two officers from the North Western Karnataka Road Transport Corporation(NWKRTC) when they were taking a bribe.

Both, accounts superintendent Jagdish Mailarappa Halwagali and his deputy senior account officer, Iranna Mallappa Eliballi, of the NWKRTC Gadag division, were caught red-handed accepting a bribe of Rs 7,000 from the victim.

ACB Superintendent BS Nemgouda and DSP of ACB Gadag division MV Mallapur led the raid.
