ACB Arrests Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s Relative in PWD Scam

arvind-3Anti corruption Branch (ACB) today arrested Vinay Bansal, close relative of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal in an alleged PWD Scam.

The accused Vinay Bansal is the son of Kejriwal’s late brother-in-law Surendra Bansal.

According to ACB, Rahul Sharma founder of Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation (RACO) lodged a complaint last year against Delhi chief minister, his brother-in-law, and other persons for alleged irregularities in the grant of contracts for roads and sewers in Delhi.

The complainant alleged that in April 2015, Renu Construction Company was granted contract ‘irregularly’ to construct a drainage system in north-west Delhi’s Bakoli village, following which the ACB filed three separate FIRs against various persons in May last year for forgery, cheating and graft.

The corruption bureau, during their probe, found that the aforesaid company gave the tender at 46% low cost to a company named Mahadev Impact, which does not exist on papers. It was also found that the work for the obtained contract was never completed. Even the bid and its technical marks were manipulated.

Since Vinay Bansal, is 50% partner in the aforesaid company, he was arrested on Thursday morning. Surendra Bansal, who is also an accused in the case, died last year after prolonged illness.

According to sources in the ACB, Vinay was unable to give satisfactory answers during questioning.
