The accused Balraj, holding the post of naib court, at the Sector 43 district courts was arrested from the corridor outside courtroom number 14, as part of a trap.

On April 4, a resident of Milk Colony, Dhanas, Rohani alias Romy, had complained to the agency that Balraj was demanding Rs 5,000 in bribe to help him get bail in a case of voluntarily causing hurt registered at the Sector 11 police station.

Non-bailable warrants had been issued against Romy, after he had stopped appearing before the court.

The CBI registered a case under the Prevention of Corruption Act and then caught the accused on Saturday.

There was commotion outside the court when the arrest was carried out.
