Hyderabad, Feb 20 (IANS) Telangana’s Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) recovered Rs 65 lakh cash and four kg gold from an official’s house after she was red-handed while accepting a bribe of Rs 84,000 from a contractor.

Tribal Welfare Engineering Department’s in-charge Superintendent Engineer K. Jaga Jyothi was arrested by ACB officials in her office in Hyderabad on Monday.
