New Delhi:

The CBI has arrested an enforcement officer of the Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) while he was allegedly taking Rs 12-lakh bribe for settling the penalty against a hospital manager, officials said Tuesday.

Rishi Raj, who works in the East Regional Office of EPFO, was arrested by the CBI red-handed, they said.

The action was taken after the manager of the multi-speciality hospital in the national capital filed a complaint, they said.

“It was alleged that the accused (Raj) conducted an inspection of a Multi Speciality Hospital, Delhi and informed the Complainant (working as Manager in the said hospital) that there were lot of irregularities in the records of Hospital for which a penalty of Rs 15 Crore (approx) would be imposed on the Hospital,” a CBI Spokesperson said here.

“A trap was laid and the accused was caught red handed while demanding and accepting bribe of Rs 12 Lakh. Searches were conducted at the premises of accused,” the spokesperson said.
