A raid was conducted as part of nationwide raids conducted to check adulteration of petroleum products. Garg was caught accepting Rs 12 lakh from the businessman.

Garg, who was then the Regional Director (North), Anti-Adulteration Cell of the Ministry of Petroleum, was convicted Saturday along with his father Swami Sharan Garg, brother Rajeev Garg and two others including Atul Jindal and Suman Sarin. CBI had found that Garg possessed assets worth more than Rs 3 crore, including Rs 1.7 crore in cash found in a bank locker.
