Micromax owners arrested for giving Rs30 lakh bribe

CBI allegedly caught Tuli and Agrawal, the owners of Micromax, while handing over Rs30 lakh as bribe to junior officials of the NDMC who were collecting the amount on behalf of a superintendent engineer, an executive engineer and two junior engineers

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Rajesh Agrawal and Manish Tuli, the two owners of mobile company Micromax when they were allegedly giving Rs30 lakh bribe to the engineers of North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) to obtain clearance for the construction of a banquet hall.

 

CBI sleuths also arrested two junior officials of NDMC along with Agrawal and Tuli. The agency carried out searches at 15 locations including residential and official premises of the MCD officers.

 

During the trap operation, CBI allegedly caught Tuli and Agrawal handing over Rs30 lakh to the junior officials of the NDMC who were there to collect the amount on behalf of a Superintendent Engineer, an Executive Engineer and two Junior Engineers, all allegedly part of the conspiracy, they said.

 

According to CBI sources the agency received a tip that Agrawal and Tuli had struck a deal with the engineers of NDMC to get clearance for construction of a banquet hall in Wazirpur area in exchange of Rs50 lakh.

 

The sources alleged that Agrawal and Tuli negotiated with the officials and brought down the alleged bribe amount to Rs30 lakh from Rs50 lakh.

 

It was also agreed that the illegal gratification will be allegedly paid to the two junior officials of the civic body.

 

Soon after getting the tip-off that the alleged bribe is to be paid at the Timarpur office of Agrawal and Tuli, a team of CBI rushed to the spot.

 

Officials of Micromax were not immediately available for comment.
