Sub-Registrar held in Tuticorin for taking bribe

 Chinnathambi (50), Sub-Registrar at Melur, was arrested by Vigilance officials, here on Friday evening, when he allegedly took bribe from Jyothimani (53) for the transfer of patta.

Official sources said Jyothimani decided to sell his 3.87 acre land at Koramballam to two persons. Hence he approached the Sub-Registrar to get the patta transferred, who in turn demanded Rs.1,000 to set the documents ready for sale.

On the request of officials from the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption, Jyothimani handed over the money to the Sub-Registrar at his office, who then was arrested.
