‘Friendly’ corruption!

“Please inflate the bill by Rs. 50,000 and give that amount by cash to me as my personal commission. This should not be known to the Managing Director.”

While this was not the first time he had received such a request, the Sales Manager was shocked!

The person making this request was the Purchase Director, who was the Managing Director’s brother.

Most importantly, the Sales Manager was a very close friend of both the brothers.
