Anand: The Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Gujarat police today nabbed a revenue department employee and a Sarpanch taking bribe of Rs 15000/- for change in the ownership record of house in Hathipura village under Anklav taluka of Anand district in Central Gujarat.

The friend of the complainant was to buy a house which was in the name of the deceased maternal grand mother of the seller to whom she had made the heir in her will.
