Justice Aggarwal Commission has issued a non bailable warrant against Delhi ACB chief Mukesh Kumar Meena for not providing documents related to CNG fitness scam.
The commission also directed that 30 percent of Meena’s salary be detached until the next order.
The responsibility to execute the non-bailable warrant has been given to the Civil Lines police station.
Meena has said that the commission investigating the CNG fitness scam has been termed invalid by a home ministry’s notification adding that ‘there is not question of replying to the summon.’
On 11 August, Delhi’s AAP government had cleared the inquiry commission that may question the former chief minister Sheila Dikshit and Lieautenant Governor on scam linked to fitness tests on CNG buses.
Investigating what came to be known as the CNG scam was a major poll issue by Arvind Kejriwal both in 2013 and 2015 assembly elections. However, 10 days later, the central government led by Narendra Modi declared the inquiry into CNG fitness scam invalid.
A statement issued from the LG House had said, “MHA terms the Commission of Inquiry constituted by the GNCTD as legally invalid and void ab initio (invalid from the outset).”
On 26 August, the Delhi government wrote to the Lieutenant Governor, Najeeb Jung, over the inquiry commission in CNG Fitness Scam reiterating its earlier stance that it was an elected government and not a ‘subordinate department of home ministry.
It said, ” Delhi government is not accountable to the home ministry but to the people. If the MHA is aggrieved, then they can approach the judiciary.”
