Water tanker scam: ACB grills Kejriwal’s private secretary
New Delhi, May 17: Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) on Wednesday questioned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s private secretary Bibhav Kumar in the alleged Rs 400-crore water tanker scam.
After rebel and sacked Delhi Minister Kapil Mishra told the ACB that two persons – Bibhav and Ashish Talwar – close to Kejriwal were responsible for the delay in action in the water tanker scam, the ACB sent a notice to Bibhav last week.
He had alleged that the investigation into the tanker scam was repeatedly delayed and influenced by Kejriwal and “his two men”.
The Rs 400-crore water tanker scam involved alleged favouritism shown in the allotment of contracts to private water tankers to supply water to areas not falling under the Delhi Jal Board’s network during the previous Congress government in Delhi.
