Former tahsildar gets three-year jail for taking bribe 25.8.2016 deccanherald.com
The Lokayukta special court on Wednesday convicted a retired revenue official for demanding and accepting bribe. The convict, H Nanjaiah, was a former tahsildar at K R Puram.

Nanjaiah had demanded a bribe of Rs 20,000 from Ramakrishna, a friend of Narayan Reddy, in July 2010 for changing the khata for the land at Thubarahalli, which was in the name of Reddy.
The complaint had stated that a court had ordered change of khata.

Lokayukta special court judge Gopalaiah sentenced Nanjaiah to rigorous imprisonment of up to three years. The court also slapped a fine of Rs 10,000.
