The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered two cases against ten persons including Central Railway officials for alleged bribery in the handling of parcels at the Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) here.


Some of the accused served as chief parcel supervisors, chief yard master and deputy station manager (yard) during the relevant period, the central agency said in a release on Thursday.


No arrest has been made, it said.


In the first case, it is alleged that officials of the parcel department were regularly taking bribes from private loaders, in cash or even through the UPI system, it said.
