THANE JULY 12, 2014


Three government officials have been nabbed for graft by the Thane unit of the anti-corruption bureau (ACB) in separate incidents at Kalwa, Kalyan and Dombivli.

In the first incident, Vilas Dhawas, an assistant registrar of Kalwa allegedly extorted money from citizens for delivering his job. He, however, ran out of luck when a complainant, who sought lease and license of his apartment, and was asked for a bribe of Rs 500 registered a complaint with the ACB, said a source.

The sleuths on Friday afternoon caught Dhawas red-handed.

In the second case, a Maharashtra secretariat clerk from Kalyan and two other agents were caught taking bribe of Rs 40,000 from a complainant. Kishor Shinde had demanded money from a ration shop owner to dispose off a complaint against him and a few other shopkeepers in Kalyan. The graft amount was later brought down to Rs 30,000. After a complaint was lodged against Shinde, a trap was laid in a hotel at Kalyan and he was caught taking the bribe, along with the two agents who have been identified as Sunil Bansode and Vinod Akhade.

In the third incident, a constable attached to the Manpada police station at Dombivli was arrested for demanding a bribe of Rs 5,000.

It is believed that Ganesh Marathe had sought the money for not filing a case against the complainant's uncle. The constable was supposed to be given money in installments and he was already paid Rs 2000.

Marathe had asked the complainant to hand over the money to a pan stall owner on Saturday at 10am.

Cases have been registered at Kalwa, Kalyan and Manpada police stations under sections of the Prevention of Anti Corruption Act, 1988.

In its effort to reach to masses and make the society corruption free, the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Thursday launched four mobile vans. Home Minister RR Patil inaugurated the mobile vans at ACB's worli office.The state ACB has over the last few months been transforming the way it functions and has been introducing new methods to ensure better efficiency.

The four mobile vans which will be camping from one government office to another consists of four policemen-two inspectors and two constables. ACB officials said that the vans have been launched with the intention to reach to masses and register corruption complaints on the spot. On Thursday the south region mobile van carrying banners slogans of anti corruption was seen moving from Mantralaya to Bombay high court and than to old custom house. ACB said for example the South region vans will cover the Bombay high court, sessions and other metropolitan courts, Old Customs House, Public Works Department, Mantralaya, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, and state and city police headquarters.

Director general of police (ACB) Praveen Dixit said,Our office is in a remote place at Pochkhanwala Road in Worli, and is not easily accessible and the registration of complaints online has also not helped much. Our moto is to reach to more people who are compelled to pay bribes. Generally speaking public avoids approaching ACB as they are not approachable but we are at their door step we feel it would make lot of difference.''

Additional commissioner of police Vishwas Nangre Patil said that on its first day there was tremondos response from the member of public.Several people were seen clicking the pictures of the slogan containing the toll free numbers. We hope our presence at government offices will curb the corruption to some extend.''

If this goes well the ACB will soon have four regional offices like the Mumbai police commissionerate viz South, Central, North-West and North-East Mumbai.The ACB is looking for a suitable place in South Mumbai for a regional office, which will have two zonal offices. While one will be at Azad Maidan, the other will be in Colaba.

The ACB has arrested a record 722 public servants after laying 528 traps this year. Last year, 269 traps had been laid and 341 were arrested in corruption cases.
