Revenue official caught taking bribe in Lakki Marwat
LAKKI MARWAT: An Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) team caught a naib tehsildar of Tajori sub-tehsil taking bribe for verifying a land mutation and arrested him, an official told Dawn on Wednesday.
He said that Iqbal Khan, a resident of Daulat Tajazai, reported to the ACE Lakki that naib tehsildar Yasir Suleman was demanding Rs2,000 bribe from his nephew Muhammad Ismail for verification of land mutation.
But as head of the family the complainant opposed paying a bribe. “On the request of ACE circle officer, the district and sessions judge deputed civil judge Muhammad Arshad Khan for conducting a raid,” the source said, adding that the complainant went to the naib tehsildar and gave him Rs2,000 marked currency notes as bribe for verification of land documents.
As soon as Mr Iqbal handed the bribe, a team of ACE accompanied by the civil judge raided the office of naib tehsildar and recovered the marked currency notes from his possession.
He said that Yasir Suleman had been arrested and a case registered against him.
