An Assistant Executive Engineer (AEE) of the Irrigation department landed in the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB)’s dragnet while allegedly receiving a bribe of ₹1.20 lakh from a contractor in Yellandu town on Monday for processing his application for payment of a pending bill under Mission Kakatiya scheme.
