[New Delhi]Delhi Police Tightens Grip Over Kejriwal :Corruption In Construction
Delhi Police has launched a preliminary inquiry into allegations of forgery+cheating+ fraud against
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his brother-in-law and a
public servant for alleged irregularities in grant of contracts for roads and sewer lines.
But FIR has not been lodged in the matter.
A complaint in this regard was lodged by Kislay Pandey, a lawyer, on behalf of the Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation (RACO), an NGO.
The complainant accused Kejriwal, his brother-in-law Surender Kumar Bansal, the proprietor of a construction company, and PK Kathuria, the then Executive Engineer in the Delhi government’s Public Works Department (PWD), of indulging in corruption.
The NGO, which claims to monitor public works, alleged that Bansal had submitted fake bills and invoices to the PWD.
It also claimed that there were documents that showed no material was actually purchased for completing the works.
It also alleged that the chief minister had caused substantive gains to Bansal and others by using his influence, adding that his role must also be probed.
