SWALLOWING A BRIBE – EATING MONEY - A CORRUPTION STORY
This morning there was a hilarious story in the newspapers about corruption.
A Revenue Official in a village in Pune District swallowed two 1000 Rupee currency notes at his office when he was caught red handed accepting a bribe by officials of the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB). Despite his eating up the currency notes and swallowing the “evidence” the ACB sleuths nabbed him, took him to a local hospital where an endoscopy was done on him and the endoscopy report revealed that there are two currency notes in his stomach. Later an X-Ray showed that the two notes had moved down inside his intestines.
Since they needed the two currency notes as evidence the cops gave the corrupt official some strong laxatives and are patiently waiting for the two thousand rupee notes to come out from his other end.
It seems that Anna Hazare’s Anti Corruption Crusade has had no effect on the lower bureaucracy who continue to literally eat money (Paise Khana...)
This story highlights the need to bring lower bureaucracy under the purview of the Lokpal Act or some strict Anti-Corruption Law.
