Manish Sisodia has responded to this arrest by tweeting. He said, "I have come to know that the CBI has arrested a GST inspector taking bribe." This officer was also posted in my office as OSD. The CBI should immediately punish him severely. I have got many such corrupt officials caught in the last five years itself.

Had just taken two lakhs and had to take one million. Friends, they are all found, they are all thieves, they are just acting for the common man. Today, I understood why Lokpal was not being made.
