According to the official, the CEO, Nathu Vitthal Rathod (42), and the security guard at the colony, Arvind Tiwari, were caught after the anti-graft agency laid a trap on receipt of a complaint.

The complainant approached the ACB, which in turn, laid a trap at the CEO's office in suburban Goregaon and nabbed Tiwari while accepting the bribe money, he said, adding Rathod was caught later.

Rathod holds the additional charge of Deputy Commissioner (Administration) at the Worli Milk Dairy, the ACB official added. PTI ZA RSY RSY
