On Friday, 49-year-old Bawiskar was arrested along with junior engineer Prajwal Bhoir for demanding a bride of R3,500 from a builder to clear his application.

An ACB officer, on condition of anonymity, said, "All this only on the first day of the raid. Investigations are
still on.

"An inquiry will be set up in this case of disproportionate assets and we will question him on how he gathered all this wealth."
