Two arrested for graft

Sleuths of the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption, on Thursday, arrested a clerk and a peon working at Tuticorin municipal office on the charge of taking bribe from a retired municipal employee.

The clerk, Nagoor Hassan, demanded Rs. 500 from Thengaraisamy to release the pension arrears due to him.

On the instruction of DVCA officials, Thengaraisamy handed over a currency note dipped in chemicals to Hassan. Soon after receiving the money, Hassan, with the help of Ramasamy, hid it somewhere in the room.

But the duo denied taking any money from the complainant when the DVAC officials entered the room and questioned them.

Hence the DVAC officials dipped the hands of all present in the room in a chemical solution, which confirmed the involvement of the duo.
