The Central Bureau of Investigation has apprehended a Branch Manager and a Field Officer of Punjab National Bank in Bagpat, Uttar Pradesh, on charges of soliciting and receiving a bribe amounting to ₹25,000.

This incident came to light when a complaint was lodged against the two individuals on July 31, 2023. The complainant, who held a KCC account jointly with his grandfather, alleged that ₹4.95 lakh was sanctioned in the account, and the amount was disbursed to their savings bank account. However, the Branch Manager decided to withhold ₹50,000 without any valid reason.

Upon questioning the Branch Manager and the Field Officer about the withheld amount, they allegedly demanded an initial bribe of ₹35,000 to release the funds. Eventually, the bribe amount was negotiated down to ₹25,000.
