Gautam Mishra, who is branch manager of Punjab and Sindh Bank's Tipariya Dhani branch, was caught red-handed on Friday while accepting Rs. 10,000 as bribe from a customer, on the promise of raising his credit card limit, CBI sources said.

Sources said that complainant Manoj Kumar Singh, hailing from Tipariya Dhani, had contacted DIG (CBI) Lucknow Pankaj Srivastava earlier and alleged that Mishra was demanding Rs. 10,000 from him to raise the limit of his credit card up to Rs. one lakh.

Based on the complaint, a trap was laid by CBI and Mishra was nabbed, they said, adding that a report against him was being sent to the bank authorities for departmental action.
