New Delhi, Dec.15 (ANI): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar was on Tuesday taken to the CBI headquarters here for questioning in relation to a graft case against him.
“I am representing him (Rajendra Kumar), CBI has told me that he has not been arrested but has been taken for questioning,” noted lawyer H. S. Phoolka told the media here.
The CBI conducted searches at the office of the Principal Secretary today morning.
The CBI has registered a case against Rajendra Kumar for allegedly favouring a firm in getting contracts from Delhi government. Papers of three immovable properties along with cash worth Rs. 2.4 lakhs have been recovered from his residence.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday claimed that the CBI came looking for Finance Minister Arun Jaitley files, and it had nothing to do with Rajendra Kumar.
“The raid was conducted to look for the files of DDCA (Delhi and District Cricket Association), in which Jaitley is involved in graft cases,” Kejriwal claimed.
Refuting Kejriwal’s allegation on the raid on Chief Minister’s office, the CBI has said that the raid was conducted on the Principal Secretary’s office following a warrant. (ANI)
