The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday said that it has arrested a Senior Inspector of the Store Account of Central Railways in a graft case.

The CBI said that the accused has been identified as Bipin Kumar Sharma, currently posted as Senior Inspector of Store Account, Mumbai division of CST, for demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs 30,000 from the complainant.

A CBI officer said that he was arrested after a case was registered on a complaint alleging that Sharma demanded a bribe of Rs 30,000 for smooth delivery of 30,000 pieces of scrap PSC Sleeper which was awarded to the firm of the complainant.

"The CBI laid a trap and caught Sharma red handed while demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs 30,000 from the complainant," the officer said.

The CBI also carried out searches at the residence of Sharma. He is being produced before the competent court at Kalyan on Thursday.
