The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has arrested Border Security Force (BSF)’s chief medical officer, along with his aide — a head constable with the paramilitary organisation — for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe to certify a job applicant fit on health grounds.

Dr SK Shah was arrested in Delhi by a CBI anti-corruption unit while allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 20,000 from the job applicant — the complainant.

“The doctor had demanded a bribe of Rs 50,000, of which Rs 20,000 was to be paid as part-payment,” said a CBI officer who is not authorized to talk to the media.
