Bhopal: CBI arrests I-T officer, husband for taking Rs 10 lakh bribe
Poonam Rai, the Deputy Commissioner of Income Tax, and her husband Ganesh Malviya were arrested for accepting a bribe of Rs 10 lakh.

Bhopal: The CBI on Saturday arrested a top Income Tax official and her politician husband on charges of taking bribe.

Poonam Rai, the Deputy Commissioner of Income Tax, and her husband Ganesh Malviya, a BJP leader, were arrested for accepting a bribe of Rs 10 lakh from a builder.

The incident happened at Rai's official residence late on Friday night in Bhopal.

The IRS officer had allegedly demanded a bribe of Rs 25 lakh from the owner of Ramayan Constructions to correct discrepancies in the company's I-T returns, they said.

On a complaint from the builder, the central agency laid a trap and caught a person, who works with Malviya and had taken Rs 10 lakh from the developer as part of the bribe money, from a Chartered Accountant's office in MP Nagar area.

A CBI team accompanied the person to Malviya's residence, from where the BJP leader was apprehended. The team then questioned Rai till midnight and later put her under arrest, the sources said.

The couple has a four-month old daughter.
