Jaipur: Senior ACB officials said that the three Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM) members who were caught taking bribe in Rajathan’s Churu tried to avoid touching the money they had demanded as bribe as a precaution. In ACB traps, currency notes are treated with phenolphthalein powder. This powder adheres to the notes’ surface but hardly visible to the naked eye. They demanded that they be handed over the bribe in a black bag. The ACB had coated the bag also with phenolphthalein powder.
