A forest official decided to turn literal with the term- rishwat khaana- when he decided to chew his way out of a bribery trap. Unfortunately for him, the officials of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) nabbed him soon enough, to extract the bribe from his mouth.

The complainant had alleged that Joshi had been demanding Rs 12,000 from him for allowing him to transport wood. On the day of the incident, Joshi took the Rs 12,000 from the complainant but soon realised that he had been trapped. "He put the Rs 12,000 in his mouth to avoid being caught red-handed.

Chinese-Australian political donor 'linked to UN bribery scandal' 23.5.2018 General News
A billionaire businessman previously accused of meddling in Australian politics on China's behalf was co-conspirator in a plot to bribe a top United Nations official, a senior Australian politician has claimed. Andrew Hastie, who chairs Canberra's intelligence and security committee, used the legal protection of parliamentary privilege to say that Chinese-Australian Chau Chak Wing was a figure codenamed CC-3 by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation. "CC-3 is Dr Chau Chak Wing," Hastie said in a speech on Tuesday evening, further fuelling fears about Chinese efforts to shape policy and opinion in democratic institutions. "The same man who co-conspired to bribe the UN president of the General Assembly, John Ashe. The same man with extensive contacts in the Chinese Communist Party," he said. "I share it with the house because I believe it to be in the national interest." Hastie's allegation follows recent meetings with US intelligence and security agency officials, who he said confirmed

The 76-year-old former CEO turned president -- who served from 2008 to 2013 -- faces multiple charges including bribery, abuse of power, embezzlement, and tax evasion.
