A city court on Wednesday sent two men,one of them an attendant in the Lok Sabha,to judicial custody till July 29 for allegedly offering permanent jobs in the Parliament for Rs 50,000 each.

Jithender Pathak,who reportedly posed as a top official in the Parliament,and Gurmeet Singh Bawa,who impersonated the personal assistant of the Home Minister,were arrested by the CBI yesterday.

The CBI said they were arrested while accepting Rs 5,000 as the first installment for the job from complainant Manikant Prasad at Bawa’s Gol Market residence on Tuesday.

“We have informed the concerned Joint Secretary in the Parliament Secretariat. Further information,if any,will be released by the Parliament as the House is in session,” said Harsh Bahl,CBI spokesperson.

“The complainant had approached the CBI after being asked to pay for the job,” said Neelam Singh,public prosecutor. Prasad was reportedly promised by the accused that his temporary job would be made permanent.

Bawa argued through his lawyer that he was not guilty of the crime and that he was only present while the transaction was being carried out.
