CBI arrests its own official on graft charges

The Central Bureau of Investigation has arrested its own inspector and a Syndicate

Bank chief manager working with the agency on secondment basis for allegedly receiving a bribe of Rs.1 lakh from an accused to favour him in a Rs.30­crore bank fraud case. The accused officials had initially demanded Rs.25 lakh.

Those arrested have been identified as Inspector S.K. Jha, on deputation with the CBI from the

Central Industrial Security Force and bank official Sambi Reddy.

“Acting in collusion, the two officials had allegedly demanded Rs.25 lakh from the complainant.

The amount was later scaled down to Rs.10 lakh through negotiations. The accused bank official

was arrested after he received the first instalment of Rs.1 lakh from the complainant,” said a CBI


During interrogation, Mr. Reddy purportedly disclosed that Inspector Jha was also part of the

conspiracy, following which he was also arrested under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
