Nagpur ACB arrested a 36-year-old man working as a junior clerk in MSEDCL for allegedly receiving a bribe of ₹2000.
The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) unit in Nagpur arrested man named Nilesh Punalik Wargade working as a junior clerk in the Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Ltd (MSEDCL) on Wednesday for allegedly receiving a bribe of ₹2000 from an official of a solar panel installation company.
Wargade, who’s attached to the Nandanvan office of the MSEDCL, is a 36-year-old man who had demanded a bribe of ₹5000 from a man who had installed a rooftop solar panel in Nandanvan and had applied to MSEDCL for a metre and other related works.
ACB said that Wargade allegedly demanded ₹5000 from the complainant for sanctioning the metre and completing other work but eventually settled for ₹2000. After the complainant filed a complaint against Wargade with the ACB, the agency laid a trap to catch him red handed but since Warghade didn’t accept the bribe, the plan failed.
However, a case was registered against Wargade under Prevention of Corruption Act at the Nandanvan Police Station.

Lata Mangeshkar’s 93rd birthday anniversary: Life story of ‘nightingale’
Today would have been late singer Lata Mangeshkar’s 93rd birthday. The ‘Queen of melody’ passed away on February 6, 2022. On her birth anniversary, Nation Next brings you her life story.
When Lata Mangeshkar got offended by Dilip Kumar and didn’t speak to him for 13 years
Nightingale of India, late Lata Mangeshkar and legendary actor late Dilip Kumar were known to share a special bond. So much so that the Queen of Melody would also tie rakhi to the latter. She was among the close ones who visited the late actor during his last days. But do you know the reason why their relation had gone sour, as a result of which they did not speak for 13 long years?
The story dates back to the time when Lata Mangeshkar was to sing ‘Laagin Naahi Chhute’ for the film Musafir, in 1957. At that time, Kumar told music composer Anil Biswas, “The Urdu of Marathis (Maharashtrians) is like dal and rice.” This offended the veteran singer, after which she decided to hone her Urdu speaking skills.
After 13 years when they met in 1970, the veteran singer remarked, “You know, Yusuf saab, I’d always heard you loathed me for being one up on you while recording the Laagi Naahin Chhute Rama duet with you in Musafir. But I only sang the way I can’t help singing any number.”
To this, Kumar gleefully asserted, “It’s precisely because you can’t help singing the way you do that my family and I adore you! How possibly could I loathe a voice so heavenly!”
On February 6, 2022, due to COVID-induced prolonged illness, the illustrious singer passed away in Mumbai.
