The Mumbai unit of the state Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Tuesday arrested two ward boys attached to G T Hospital while the two were allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 1,500 from a city-based journalist in lieu of issuing a medical certificate.
ACB officers said the complainant was treated for throat infection at the hospital earlier this month. He subsequently asked for a medical certificate to submit at his workplace. However, ward boy Santosh Nagvekar asked for Rs 2,000 and said the certificate would not be issued unless the complainant paid. The complainant then approached the ACB.
The ACB laid a trap at the GT Hospital. Nagvekar allegedly accepted Rs 1,500 from the complainant and handed it over to Pradip Shirke, another ward boy. Both were arrested.
