    Kejriwal Says Documents Seized From His Office Unrelated to CBI’s Probe

    NewDelhi/Nagpur: Even as the Central Bureau of Investigation claimed that the raids were on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajender Kumar, the agency did not take any files related to the accused as alleged by the Delhi Chief Minister.

    Kejriwal claimed that the CBI kept reading files related to Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) in his office. The agency allegedly instead seized the file movement register of the Chief Minister’s office from September 15 till December 15 and a copy of AAP Cabinet decision of June 11 according to Kejriwal.

    Kejriwal tweeted, “Documents seized from my office. No relation to allegations being probed. Item 7 -file movement register of last one month. CBI kept reading DDCA file in my office. They would have seized it. But after my media briefing, they left it. Not clear if they took a copy.”

    The raids had taken place on Tuesday after the Anti-Corruption Branch registered a case of criminal misconduct against Kumar and other private people. Some Delhi government officials had taken voluntary retirement scheme and floated a software company and Rajender Kumar was allegedly favouring them from many years in getting them contract.

    Kumar’s office is situated on the same floor as Kejriwal’s in the Delhi Secretariat. After the raid the CBI sealed the entire floor which saw the AAP launching a no holds barred attack on the Centre and CBI.

    Raids were conducted at 14 other locations too including Kumar’s residence where CBI have claimed to recover foreign currency worth Rs 3 lakh.
    As soon as the raids took place at Delhi Secretariat, Kejriwal wasted no time to lash out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and called him a coward and a psychopath. “CBI raids my office. When Narendra Modi couldn’t handle me politically, he resorts to this cowardice. Modi is a coward and a psychopath,” Kejriwal had tweeted.

    Refusing to apologise, Kejriwal also targetted Finance Minister Arun Jaitley claiming that CBI raids on the Delhi Secretariat were aimed to save him and access files in the DDCA graft case. “Which file was CBI looking for in my office? DDCA files in which Arun Jaitley is in dock. I was about to order a commission of enquiry,” Kejriwal added.

    The Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) had on December 9 questioned Rajendra Kumar in connection with alleged irregularities in conducting fitness tests for commercial vehicles. According to ACB sources, the queries mostly revolved around action taken by Kumar after the anti-corruption bureau submitted a report in 2013 in connection with the alleged irregularities, ACB sources said.

    In 2013, Kumar, who is now Principal Secretary to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, was the transport commissioner.
