Alot (Madhya Pradesh): A team of Ujjain Lokayukta caught a patwari accepting a bribe of Rs 8,000 near the Kargil intersection, Alot on Tuesday. The accused was identified as Priyanka Verma.

The Lokayukta's intervention followed a complaint filed by Shivraj Singh Chauhan, an Anandgarh resident, who reported Verma's demand for a Rs 15,000 bribe under the pretext of lifting a mortgage.

Posted in Hingdi Halke village for the past three months, Priyanka Verma allegedly misused her position to solicit bribes for resolving land-related issues.

The case surrounds farmer Prahlad Singh, who sought the removal of a mortgage hindering the transfer of a one-bigha land purchased in Hingdi.

Despite a rejected appeal in the Tehsil Court and a refusal by the Naib Tehsildar, Patwari Priyanka Verma allegedly promised to address the mortgage issue in exchange for monetary gain.

The Lokayukta team, led by officer Basant Srivastava, executed the operation, resulting in Priyanka Verma's arrest. This incident underscores the ongoing battle against corruption in local administrative offices, emphasising the commitment to maintaining integrity and transparency in public service.
