On Wednesday 6th June, the Anti-corruption bureau (ACB) laid a trap for 2 CIDCO officials who were demanding a Rs 1,00,000 bribe from a lawyer for issuing a conveyance deed. Lawyer Vandana Jadhav had been trying to secure a conveyance deed for Sri Ganesh Society in Ghansoli for the past year and a half. Recently, CIDCO estate officer Sanjeev Dhole (45 yrs old) and his assistant Sunanda Gaikwad (51 yrs old) demanded 1 lakh in bribe. After further negotiations, they settled at 50,000.
Lawyer Vandana Jadhav informed the ACB who laid a trap and caught the officials red handed.
This is just one in a long series of corruption cases in CIDCO, an agency which thrives on corruption from head to toe.
