Controversy over CBI summoning Delhi govt staff over phone, Arvind Kejriwal slams agency


Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday slammed the federal probe agency CBI for summoning several staff belonging to different ministries of his government over the phone.

He tweeted, “CBI summons Delhi CM’s staff ‘informally’ on phone without notice. Staff of other ministers called earlier like this.”

The CBI, for its part, has refused to comment on the Delhi chief minister’s tweets.

“We don’t know why the CM has been politicising a routine process. Earlier too, officials have been asked to depose. It’s an ongoing matter,” an official was quoted by Hindustan Times.

Defending its decision, the CBI said that it had only summoned staff in connection with the agency’s raids at the office of Kejriwal’s principal secretary, Rajendra Kumar, in December last year.
