We have seized Rs 36,500 from the tehsildar and the document of the complainant. Inspector Sachin, SVB, Karnal
Singla was arrested late on Sunday evening on the disclosure of his reader Gulshan Gulati, who was caught red-handed while accepting Rs 20,000 from a complainant for re-correcting girdawari of his land. The reader said he was taking money on behalf of the tehsildar.
