CBI officers on Saturday arrested Deputy Manager of State Bank of India Ajay Kumar Sinha when he was accepting a bribe of Rs 30,000.  Sinha, posted in the Small and Medium Enterprises, Cash Credit Centre in the bank’s Patna Main Branch, was arrested after Umesh Kumar, a resident of Kankarbagh here, had recently lodged a complaint with the anti-corruption branch of CBI that he had applied for a loan of Rs 25 lakh for installation of a Rice Polishing Plant, sources said.

For processing the loan application favourably, the SBIofficial demanded bribe of Rs 1.20 lakh. But, after the deal was negotiated through a middleman, he wanted Rs 30,000 as the first instalment.

CBI sleuths trapped Sinha when he was taking the money from Kumar, they added.
