Two persons were arrested for allegedly trying to bribe a Customs officer, Central Bureau of Investigation officials said today.
"A tempo carrying smuggled goods, including mobile accessories, valued at Rs 4 crore was intercepted by a Customs official near Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) in south Mumbai," a CBI official said.
A case was then registered on the complaint of Assistant Commissioner, Customs (Marine and Preventive), Mumbai who stated that private individuals were offering him a bribe, the official said.
A trap was laid and Ajmera and Jagarwal were nabbed while attempting to bribe the official, he said.
The arrested accused were produced before a special CBI court which remanded them in CBI custody for two days, he informed.
