Mahbubnagar: The sleuths of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) arrested a police constable of one town police station for harassing a tractor owner legally transporting sand to customers in Venkataiahpally village of Mahbubnagar district on Friday.
According to sources, Tirupathi Reddy, a constable from one town police station in Mahbubnagar, used to intercept the tractor of Mudavath Ramesh, who has official licence to transport sand from the sand dumping yard to various places in the district.
In July, Tirupathi Reddy stopped the tractor of Mudavath Ramesh several times and demanded him to pay bribe. The constable further threatened to seize the tractor if Ramesh failed to pay the bribe amount of Rs 16,000.
Unable to bear the constable's torture, Ramesh approached the ACB officials, who laid a trap and nabbed the constable while accepting the bribe amount. A case was registered against the constable.
