The CBI official said that the officer has demanded Rs 2 lakh to settle an issue of tax.
After arresting him, the CBI sleuths took him to the agency’s headquarters in south Delhi’s Lodhi road for questioning.
Meanwhile, Sisodia took to Twitter on Friday to say that the official should be given the “strictest punishment”. He claimed that the officer was his former OSD even though the agency said otherwise.
The development comes just a day ahead of voting for the 320 – member Delhi assembly. The BJP, AAP and Congress are locked in a triangular contest for the throne to the Capital. While the polls are a litmus test for the BJP since the outrage over the Citizenship Amendment Act, Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP hopes to repeat its 2020 magic.
