Maharashtra’s Chief Post Master General M.S. Bali has been caught while accepting a bribe of Rs 2 crore, a top Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) official said on Thursday.
Bali was caught red-handed by the CBI on Wednesday night.
CBI Western Region Director Rishi Raj Singh said investigators also recovered Rs.34 lakh in cash from his residence in south Mumbai and more than $10,000 as well as British pounds and euros.
Bali also owns two expensive cars, a bank locker in Gwalior and a huge cache of liquor, Singh said.
The bribe was demanded in return for granting a no-objection certificate to develop a plot of land belonging to a private builder in Mira Road suburb of Thane district, he said.
