The case was registered against Desh Raj on a complaint of an inspector posted at Sector 26, Chandigarh.

"It was alleged that the accused had demanded Rs 5 lakh as illegal gratification from the complainant for showing favour in an enquiry against him. CBI laid a trap and caught the accused while demanding and accepting a bribe of Rs one lakh as the first installment," the spokesperson said.

He said the agency had filed a charge sheet on July 11, 2013 in the court of Special Judge, CBI Cases, UT, Chandigarh.
