Two years ago, the complainant was awarded a Railway contract for Loading and Unloading of Line Boxes of Guards. But the Complainant’s tender got cancelled due to illegal penalties getting imposed against him. The Earnest Money, Performance Guarantee and Security Deposit all totaling to an amount of Rs.1,51,338/- deposited by him earlier, got seized.
The Chief Yard Master allegedly demanded a bribe of Rs.30,000/-, out of which Rs.5,000/- as first installment was asked to be paid towards contract re-continual and release of seized amount of deposit.
CBI laid a trap and caught the Chief Yard Master red handed, while demanding and accepting the 1st installment of bribe from the Complainant. The accused is being produced today in the Designated Court at Ghaziabad (U.P) and a case has been registered under Section 7 of Prevention of Corruption Act,1988.
