The CBI has accused Kumar of setting up companies to provide work contracts without tenders at a huge loss to the Delhi government.

Sources in the agency say the scam dates back to 2006, when Mr Kumar started a front company, Endeavours Systems Private Limited, to provide IT solutions and software. The company empaneled with Public Sector Units to get government work without tenders.
