The Anti-Corruption Branch today recorded the statement of sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra over his allegations that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had influenced the probe into a 400 crore rupee tanker scam. Mr Mishra arrived at the ACB office at noon to record his statement.
A few days back, he had visited the ACB office and shared evidence related to the tanker scam that dates back to Mrs Sheila Dikshit’s tenure as chief minister. Mr Mishra has alleged that the investigation into the tanker scam was repeatedly delayed and influenced by Mr Kejriwal and his two men.
The AAP government had in June 2015 constituted a fact-finding committee to go into alleged irregularities in procuring some 385 stainless steel water tankers by the DJB. The government in June 2016 sent a report of the fact-finding committee to the then Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung following which an FIR was registered in case.
