A Shiv Sena corporator of the Kalyan-Dombivali Municipal Corporation was Tuesday booked for allegedly demanding a bribe of Rs 1 lakh from a contractor, a senior Anti-Corruption Bureau official said.

Deputy Superintendent of ACB Navi Mumbai Unit Ramesh Chavan identified the corporator as Gorakh Jadhav (26) of Ward number 7 in Kalyan’s Atali area.

“The contractor had received a civic work costing Rs 9.49 lakh. The corporator wanted a ten per cent cut failing which he threatened to obstruct the work. The contractor lodged a complaint with ACB on February 23 this year alleging that Jadhav was demanding a bribe,” Chavan said.

He said an ACB probe confirmed that the corporator had demanded a bribe of Rs 1 lakh.

“We booked him today under Prevention of Corruption Act. A case has been registered with the Khadakpada police station. Jadhav has not been arrested so far and further probe is on,” Chavan said. PTI COR BNM BNM
