The US government has accused former Computer Associates chief executive officer Sanjay Kumar of paying a $3.7m (£2m) bribe to a customer who had threatened to tell the government about a bogus software deal.

The accusation forms part of the government’s case against Kumar, who faces nine charges of wrongdoing following the financial scandal which engulfed CA around 18 months ago.
