GM of FCI arrested for taking Rs 5 lakh bribe

CBI on Saturday arrested a General Manager of the Food Corporation of India (FCI) in Bhopal for allegedly taking a bribe of Rs five lakh from a Delhi businessman in lieu of clearing his bills.

According to the agency, the Director of a Delhi-based firm had complained to it that FCI GM Ashish Agarwal had demanded a bribe of Rs 10 lakh for passing bills of his firm against loading expenses amounting to about Rs 85 lakh.

The agency laid a trap and Agarwal was caught red-handed while allegedly accepting the bribe amount of Rs five lakh from the Director of the private firm, a CBI spokesperson said here.

Searches at the official and residential premises of Agarwal are being conducted, the spokesperson added.
