Karnataka Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on November 24 recovered cash worth approximately 13 lakhs, from a fake pipeline, during a raid at the residence of a Public Works Department officer, Shantha Gowda Biradar.

According to the reports, the residence of PWD joint engineer Shantha Gowda Biradar in Kalburgi district was raided as part of a statewide crackdown on government officials accused of corruption.

Visuals recorded during the raid show officials and the plumber removing sections of pipes and fishing out wads of notes from inside. Apparently, these pipes for show were installed at the house to hide unaccounted cash.

Reportedly, ACB officers on Wednesday conducted simultaneous raids in 60 locations across Karnataka against government officers on charges of disproportionate assets.

The search team comprised of more than 400 officers, including 8 Superintendent of Police, 100 officers, and 300 staff members.
