As per report a policeman from Telangana landed in trouble after he was caught red-handed by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) while accepting a bribe and however, the policeman in question was given a ‘best constable’ award on Independence Day, just a day earlier. Reportedly Palle Thirupati Reddy, a police constable at the I Town police station in Mahbubnagar was caught with the bribe amount in his back pocket, following which photos of him receiving a citation from Telangana Minister V srinivas Goud were widely shared.
Furthermore ACB DSP S krishna Goud told that the constable had allegedly been harassing a resident of Venkatapur village, identified as Ramesh, for over one year, whenever he was transporting sand in his tractor. Apparently Ramesh claimed that the constable would frequently stop him, though he had all valid documents to transport the sand and had recently even allegedly threatened to file a false case against him.
Hence following this, Ramesh agreed to pay an amount of Rs 17,000 to ensure that no case is filed against him and that his tractor is not seized. Moreover ahead of his meeting with Reddy, he filed a complaint with the ACB, which laid a trap and caught the constable and produced before a special court for ACB cases and sent to judicial remand and those who wish to report corruption within the Telangana government departments may dial 1064 or go the ACB website.
