Allegedly, Adi Laxmamma demanded money from Yathish Baikampady to receive tender from Jyothi Advertisers. This tender was called for the development of Tannirbavi Beach in a bid to make it as popular as Panambur Beach. Yathish Baikampady had applied for this tender, which is scheduled to be auctioned. A number of other companies had applied and Adi Laxmamma was trying to bargain with all of them.


Yathish lodged a complaint with the Lokayukta, which instructed him to speak to Adi Laxmamma over the telephone. The conversation, which was duly recorded, revealed that Laxmamma demanded a sum of Rs. 10,000 to act in his favor. She also instructed him to give her the money at Panambur Beach at 1:00 p.m. today. The Lokayukta team caught her red-handed when she was accepting the bribe money.
