Railway Board Member (staff) Mahesh Kumar arrested by CBI for paying bribe

Railway Board Member (staff) Mahesh Kumar  arrested by CBI for paying bribe

Mahesh Kumar was accused of paying Singla Rs 90 lakh to get a lucrative position as Railway Board Member (Electrical). The money was caught in Chandigarh, which led to a spate of raids in Delhi, Mumbai, Chandigarh and Bangalore and the subsequent arrests.
Mahesh Kumar was made the Railway Board Member (Staff) only on Thursday. Prior to that, he was the GM, Western Railways. Kumar also has a Guinness World Record in his name for commissioning the world's 'Largest Route Relay Interlocking' at Old Delhi Railway Station in the shortest possible time of 36

hours and he is the only officer from the Indian Railway to have achieved this.

In an operation kept under wraps, CBI kept a tab on Mahesh Kumar's movements and phone calls and swooped down on Singla at the time of bribe payment.

Mahesh Kumar's conduit was a person called Manjunath who too was arrested. Another person arrested by the CBI was Sandip Goyal who allegedly assisted in brokering the deal.

A case has been registered against Vijay Singla, Mahesh Kumar and the other two under various sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act and IPC.
