New Delhi, Nov 17 (IANS): The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday said that it has arrested a Superintendent, CGST in Gujarat's Gandhidham for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs one lakh from a man.

The accused was identified as S. Maheshwari, Superintendent, CGST(Audit), Audit Circle-VI, Gandhidham.

A senior CBI official said that a case was registered against Maheshwari, on the allegations of demanding undue advantage of Rs 2.40 lakh (demand of Rs 100 per container) from a man for the containers he cleared during his earlier posting.

Maheshwari asked the complainant to pay the said bribe so as to save him from the Audit which he threatened to conduct, if the undue advantage was not paid.
