``The assets in both the cases are found to be beyond their means and hence we are in the process of registering a disproportionate asset case against the officers as well their wives.'' said an ACB officer.

On Wednesday the ACB had caught Dhanshetty and Achule while accepting a bribe of Rs 18 lakhs. The Thane ACB had registered a case against an excise sub-inspector under the Prevention of Corruption Act on January 22. The complainant sub-inspector feared that since a criminal case had been registered against him, he would be denied a promotion as excise inspector, suspended and a departmental probe may be initiated against him.

He approached Anchule and Dhanshetty to ensure his promotion and that a departmental probe is not conducted against him for which duo demanded a bribe.

The sub-inspector then complained to the ACB's Mumbai office. Anchule and Dhanshetty were caught while accepting the bribe in the excise department's Koliwada office in Thane district. An offence under the Prevention of Corruption Act has been registered against the duo. excise superintendent Manohar Anchule,Ramesh Dhanshetty,house searches.,excise inspector,Anti Corruption Bureau
