Railways bribery case: Another accused held in Chandigarh

Chandigarh, May 7 : The CBI Tuesday arrested Ajay Garg, an industrialist, here in connection with the railways bribery case, an official source said.


Garg was arrested from Sector 22 in the afternoon. He is the tenth accused to be arrested by the case, the source in the probe agency said.

Vijay Singla, nephew of Chandigarh MP and Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal, was arrested from the city Friday allegedly while accepting a bribe of Rs.90 lakh.

The bribe was paid to Singla by two people for allegedly getting a senior railway officer, Mahesh Kumar, appointed as a member of the powerful Railway Board, the CBI said.

Garg's arrest came on a day when Bharatiya Janata Party activists protested near the house of Bansal in Sector 28, demanding his dismissal from the union cabinet.
