Mumbai: An Army Major arrested by the CBI in an alleged graft case was today remanded to police custody till June 24.

The accused Major Dipendra Bhushan was arrested yesterday by the anti-corruption wing of CBI for allegedly demanding Rs 50,000 as bribe from a candidate who wanted a job in the army.

Bhushan, a doctor at the army recruitment office in Colaba, was caught red-handed accepting Rs 10,000 from the candidate to issue a medical certificate that would get him a job of a soldier (technical), CBI said.

The CBI officials laid a trap after the candidate filed a complaint. Bhushan was arrested along with his driver Bharat Oram while accepting the bribe amount.
