ACB recover 480 Town Planning files, seals from BBMP officer’s house


Assistant Director-Town Planning Devendrappa was nabbed earlier while accepting Rs 20-lakh bribe


in a shocking development, Anti-Corruption Bureau officials have recovered more than 480 files related to the Town Planning Department, seals in the names of senior officials and more than 120 litres of liquor from the house of BBMP’s Assistant Director-Town Planning Devendrappa.
