    Nagpur News: The Revenue Department topped the list as most corrupt followed by the Police Department in the Nagpur Range of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB). A total of 20 bribery cases were registered with the ACB against Revenue Department and 25 accused were trapped for demanding and accepting bribe money. Similarly, 17 complaints were lodged in the ACB against Police Department and 24 policemen were netted by the ACB for demanding and accepting the bribe bounty. The accused, who got trapped in the ACB dragnet for corruption, include 8 Class-I officials, 7 Class-II officers and 65 Class-III employees, 1 Class-IV employee, 1 other and 5 private persons. The number of total personnel trapped for bribery stands at 87 in the Nagpur Range. The figures are from January 1, 2013 to December 25, 2013.

    The Anti-Corruption Bureau, Nagpur Range received 73 complaints against 18 Government and Semi-Government Departments including 1 private establishment during the period. The 8 Class-I officials who fell into the ACB net include 1 official of Revenue Department, 3 of Police Department, 1 Forest, 1 MSEDCL, 1 Public Health, and 1 Finance Department.

    The Anti-Corruption Bureau, Nagpur Range is headed by Superintendent of Police Nishit Mishra, IPS.

    However, the figures released by ACB appear to be an iceberg or tip of a mountain. The unregistered complaints could make mockery of the official figures.

    The disastrous effects of corruption on public life are clearly evident as hundreds of citizens run from one corner to another to get their works done but ultimately fall victim to greedy Government employees. While there are adequate laws to punish the corrupt and agencies to investigate and prosecute the culprits, what is lacking is the will to come forward and fight corruption at all levels. Corruption has become an accepted part of life today. However, it is one of the main factors standing in the way of a higher standard of life for the common man.
