MUM­BAI, Jan 13 (PTI)

A Gov­ern­ment med­i­cal of­fi­cer and his aide were nabbed by the ACB on Sun­day in Ma­ha­rash­tra’s Parb­hani dis­trict for al­legedly ac­cept­ing Rs 8000 in bribe for con­duct­ing a surgery on an el­derly woman, an of­fi­cial said. Dr Ga­janan Kale, the Med­i­cal Of­fi­cer with the Parb­hani dis­trict hos­pi­tal, had al­legedly de­manded the money to in­sert a rod in one of the leg’s of the woman who had met with an ac­ci­dent, the Anti-Cor­rup­tion Bureau of­fi­cial said.

Con­se­quently, the son of the woman ap­proached the lo­cal ACB unit in Parb­hani, around 500 kms from here, fol­low­ing which a trap was set. The of­fi­cial said Dr Kale, who is an MS in Orthopaedics, asked the com­plainant to hand over the money to his aide Pan­dur­nag Dukre (27), a pri­vate per­son when the ACB team nabbed them on Sun­day morn­ing.
