Talathi eats bribe money to evade arrest

Talathi eats bribe money to evade arrest

A talathi of Pimpelgaon village, about 60km away from Pune, on Thursday swallowed two Rs1,000 currency notes at his office when sleuths of anti corruption bureau (ACB) went to arrest him for accepting a bribe.
The ACB sleuths were taken aback when they saw Satish Vishnu Shelke, 30, gulping down the currency notes.
Despite Shalke's bizarre attempt to evade arrest, the sleuths nabbed him. They then admitted him in a local hospital where an endoscopy was done on him. "The endoscopy report said that there are two currency notes in his stomach," said SB Patil, deputy superintendent of police (ACB), Pune.
A local farmer had registered a complaint with the ACB accusing Shelke of demanding bribe for registering his land.
Patil said a trap was laid at Shelke's office to nab him red handed. "After giving Shelke the bribe when the farmer signalled to the ACB team, Shelke got a wind of it and swallowed the currency notes," Patil added.
