Pareek continued to evade CBI after his name figured in the case, which was booked against his boss Jaipur Customs Commissioner Pawan Kumar Jain on the charges of corruption.

Sleuths of the investigation agency had arrested two private custom agents Sunil and Lalaram earlier this month while accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh allegedly on behalf of customs commissioner Jain and customs assistant commissioner Pareek, CBI inspector Narendra Singh said.

In the complaint filed with the CBI, the complainant had alleged that customs commissioner Jain and customs assistant commissioner Pareek had demanded the bribe for release of imported goods seized in Jaipur, he said.

Search is on to nab Pareek, one of the accused in the case, who went into hiding to evade arrest, Singh said.
