Interestingly, in this case the corrupt surveyor was caught not in his office, but in a bar.

However, it is said, he later demanded Rs 6000. Though a part of the  amount i.e Rs 3200 was paid, the surveyor reportedly began to  harass the applicant by not issuing the documents until the full amount was paid.

Interestingly, he asked the applicant to pay the  balance amount at a particular bar. Padmanabha then approached the Lokayukta with a  complaint  and the surveyor was caught while he was accepting the bribe at the bar on January 8, Tuesday.
