Bengaluru: Currency notes were dug out of pipelines in a raid by Anti-Corruption Bureau at the residence of an engineer with the Public Works Development (PWD). The video of the same has gone viral on social media platforms.

Officials said the residence of PWD joint engineer Shantha Gowda Biradar in Kalburgi district was raided as part of a statewide crackdown on government officials accused of corruption.

During the raid at Biradar’s residence, ACB officials recovered Rs 25 lakh in cash and a huge quantity of gold.

On receiving information that the PWD joint engineer had hidden cash in the pipelines at his residence, officials got a plumber to extract the wads of currency notes from the pipes.


Visuals recorded during the raid show officials and the plumber removing sections of pipes and fishing out wads of notes from inside.

Apparently, these pipes were installed at the house to hide unaccounted cash.
