The officials said the pictures were the handiwork of squabbling touts. On Wednesday noon, BT Srinivas, tweeted: “Someone posted these pictures of Patancheru RTO Office on my Facebook timeline. Driving license, new vehicle registration, renewal applications are nicely arranged with required kickback for approval.

Great collective effort by brokers”. The two pictures that have been doing the rounds on social media showed RTA documents with wads of notes clipped to the documents. RTA officials launched a preliminary investigation into the allegation a few hours after the tweet but found the pictures were not taken inside the Patancheru RTA office premises.

A senior official with the RTA said, “I am told that these documents shown in pictures were not submitted in the Patencheru office.

The photo of the background is also not Patancheru office.
