According to sources, Mamidi Lakshmi had applied for a public copy of the family member certificate at the office in June 2017 as she had lost the original. The file was with the senior assistant B.Surya Kala who called Lakshmi to come and collect the certificate and demanded a bribe of Rs.10,000.

According to DSP K.Ramakrishna Prasad, the entire conversation was recorded by the complainant and it served as an electronic evidence. The complainant approached Surya Kala and handed over the amount. Immediately, the ACB officials including a women SI and a constable present there in mufti took her into custody and the amount was recovered from her. Both hands of Surya Kala tested positive in the chemical test and was arrested.
