Following the arrest of the duo – Dyaneshwar Suyabhan Yevle (49), a government driver, and Pankaj Dashpute (38), a primary teacher in Nashi – searches were carried out at the premises of the three accused, which threw light on the immovable properties owned by them, it said.

The anti-graft agency said it was found that the absconding officer owns several properties.

Yevle and Dashpute were caught accepting Rs 8 lakh bribe from the management of the educational institute, which runs four schools, for fixing the position of the teaching and non-teaching staff of the school, it said.
