The Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) of Delhi has carried out searches at various places in the national capital yesterday, in connection with its probe in the alleged PWD scam.
Three separate FIRs have been registered by the anti-graft body in the alleged PWD scam, including one against the company of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s late brother-in-law, Surender Kumar Bansal.
A senior official said that they were carrying out searches at various places linked to those named in the FIR but refused to divulge further details. Some PWD officials have also been probed in the matter.
The FIRs were registered on the basis of a complaint filed by the founder of Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation, Rahul Sharma, alleging irregularities in the grant of contracts for roads and sewer lines in Delhi in 2015-16. The ACB had also conducted raids at the PWD office last week and collected some files and the complainant was also examined.
