The complainant is a regular supplier of various materials to the Western Railway for which he raised bills for payment and submitted them to the accused, COS Sanjay Waghela.

In the complaint, the company representative said that he also made a regular followup for processing, passing and payments of his bills by the Accounts Department, with Waghela.

Recently, the company supplied materials worth Rs 4.80 crore for which Waghela was the processing officer in the DRM's office. When the complainant approached him to clear his dues, Waghela allegedly demanded a bribe of Rs 100 per Rs 1 lakh, coming around Rs 50,000 as a bribe to process and pass the bills for payment.
