Role of Gender in Corruption

This is a very interesting topic for debate. Are women less corrupt? Everyone who reads this article can decide based on their personal experience. The fact is some women demand and accept bribe directly, while some have mediators like male relatives or office staff who receive bribe on their behalf.
Seetha Fernandes, an assistant educational officer demanded a bribe of Rs. 30,000 from an elementary school teacher Mrs.Krishnamary, of R.C Elementary school in Sendivakkam near Melmaruvathur. Krishnamary filed a complaint with the vigilance department. Seetha Fernandes was arrested by the vigilance department when she was caught in the act of accepting the money. She was produced in front of a magistrate in Chengalpet District Court and was sentenced to a jail term.
