An official of the Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC) at Vashi, Navi Mumbai, was on Thursday caught accepting a bribe of Rs 25,000, the police said. Namdev Gopichand Jadhav, 52, who is deputy secretary of the vegetable market in APMC, had demanded the bribe in lieu of not levying additional market tax on the transport vehicles of the 47-year-old complainant and his associates, a police officer said.

The complainant approached the Anti Corruption Bureau (ABC), which laid a trap at Jadhav's office in APMC Thursday evening, he said. "Jadhav had initially demanded a bribe of Rs 50,000 to not levy additional market tax on the incoming vegetable transport vehicles of the complainant and his associates.
