On Thursday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) apprehended Gopal Krishna Madhav, a Delhi government officer, over bribery charges. He was allegedly an OSD with the Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia.

Madhav was arrested late in the night around 11:30 pm after a trap was set. He was caught red-handed, accepting a bribe to the tune of ₹2 lacs. He was taken straightaway to the CBI Headquarters. Reportedly, Madhav’s arrest was in connection with a case related to the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The senior DANICS (Delhi, Andaman Nicobar Island Civil Services) officer was reportedly serving as the OSD (Officer on Special Duty) to Manish Sisodia since 2015. Madhav was earlier associated with the Department of Trade and Taxes of the Delhi Government.

The arrest has come barely two days before the Delhi elections, scheduled on 8 February.
