Rajkumar, posted at the Tagore Villa branch on Chakrata Road, was arrested on Saturday evening following a complaint by Kunal Sharma, who wanted a loan of Rs 5 lakh from the PNB, the sources said.

After the complaint, the CBI arrested the bank officials as he accepted the money from Sharma. The bank manager's Arya Nagar residence in the city was later searched.
