The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested the then inspector and dock examiner of Mundra Port in Gujarat along with a civilian in a ₹2 lakh bribery case. A case was registered against the inspector for allegedly demanding ₹7 lakh from the complainant, a custom house agent, to clear a shipment during his tenure at Mundra Port.
CBI laid a trap and caught the civilian while accepting the bribe of ₹2 lakh from the complainant on behalf of the inspector who is now the superintendent of customs in Jamnagar. During a search operation at the premises of the accused in Mundra and Jamnagar, the CBI recovered ₹9.50 lakh in cash, including incriminating documents.
Both the accused, now under arrest, will be produced before the Competent Court at Ahmedabad on Friday.
