Top taxman in CBI net

CBI on Thursday arrested a joint commissioner of Income Tax posted in Thane for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 3.5 lakh from a businessman to bail him out in a tax evasion case. CBI sources said Sanjeev Ghai was taken into custody after he was caught red-handed accepting the bribe from the businessman.

Sources said Ghai, had approached the businessman through a chartered accountant to settle his case and allegedly demanded Rs 10 lakh, which was later brought down to

Rs 3.5 lakh, they said.

After getting input about the deal, a team of CBI officers laid a trap at Ghai's office and arrested him while he was allegedly accepting the bribe, the sources said.
