The CBI today claimed to have recovered Rs 36 lakh in cash, besides property documents, from premises of two income tax officers, including a Joint Commissioner, arrested by the agency in a bribery case.
Arun Gurjar, a 1999 batch Indian Revenue Service officer, and Baljit Singh, inspector, were arrested yesterday by agency sleuths here following a complaint from a grain merchant.
CBI sources said the agency recovered Rs 30 lakh from residential premises of Singh and Rs six lakh from Gurjar's office.
Both the accused were remanded to police custody for four days today.
The sources said the agency also seized documents pertaining to properties, both movable and immovable, in the names of the officers and their family members.
Singh was apprehended while allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh from the complainant at the office of Gurjar.
