ACB ‘drains’ lakhs of rupees from pipe in Kalaburagi house

Lakhs of rupees meant for laying public roads had not gone down the drain as it usually does. Instead, it had been hidden away in a drainage pipe of a junior government official’s house in north Karnataka. That is precisely what Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) sleuths found during the raid on a threestorey residence of Shanthagouda M Biradar, a junior engineer in the state public works department, in Kalaburagi on Wednesday.
