CBI Arrests Arvind Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar In 50 Crore Scam

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar and four others were arrested by the CBI on Monday evening (July 4) in a corruption case to the tune of Rs 50 crore. “Allegations are related to bribery and abuse of position against them, further probe is underway,” CBI Spokesperson RK Gaur told media. CBI says that there is a strong evidence of quid pro quo against Rajender Kumar. According to the first information report, Rajendra Kumar promoted a company, Endeavour System Pvt. Ltd. from 2007, by allegedly misusing his official position and facilitated tenders worth Rs.9.5 crore to the company. Delhi’s deputy CM Manish Sisodia hit out at the Centre shortly after the arrest, saying, “Centre has now stooped very low. This is all a conspiracy.” “All this has been done to paralyse the CM office,” he also said. CBI had raided office of principal secretary Rajendra Kumar on December 15, 2015. Since then, it has been a bone of contention between the Kejriwal govt and the Centre. The other four arrested have been identified as Tarun Sharma (then assistant directorof the VAT dept), Sandeep Kumar (Owner of a private company which is front company of Rajender Kumar), Dinesh Gupta and Ashok Kumar. All the five accused will be produced in Delhi’s Patiala House court on Tuesday.
