The Anti-Corruption Commission on Wednesday arrested a land official of Nangalkot Upazila of Comilla while taking bribe from an individual.
A seven-member ACC team, led by its director Md Abu Sayed, arrested assistant land officer of Bangodda union parishad land office Md Abul Hossain at his office, ACC public relations officer Pranab Kumar Bhattacharjee told reporters.
Abul Hossain demanded Tk 4,000 from the complainant, Nashiul Haque, when Nashiul had gone to the local UP land office recently regarding mutation of a piece of property.
Later, Nashiul lodged a complaint with the ACC against the land official using the ACC’s hotline-106.
Advised by the ACC officials, Nashiul Haque went to the land office again on Wednesday to hand over the bribe-money to Abul Hossain and the commission officials caught him red-handed in the act.
