OSD of Manish Sisodia arrested after information by middleman
New Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s OSD Gopal Krishna Madhav was arrested based on information provided by a middleman who allegedly collected bribes from transporters on his behalf, officials said on Friday.
The probe agency arrested the officer and middleman Dheeraj Gupta on Thursday, two days before the Delhi elections.
During the questioning, Gupta claimed that he was collecting Rs 2.26 lakh as bribe for Madhav, a Delhi Andaman and Nicobar Island Civil Service officer in trade and tax department.
Based on the information, the CBI arrested Madhav in a late evening operation on Thursday and immediately took him to the agency headquarters for questioning.

Madhav was posted in the office of Sisodia in 2015, they said.
