Aam Aadmi Part led Delhi government has told city High Court that the ACB chief M K Meena was hampering the working of the anti-graft body by intimidating its officials.
According to reports, the government said that he was “not working in accordance with law” by not letting others work.
This comes after officer S S Yadav, who was heading the ACB until Meena was brought in by the Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, complained that he was being pressurised by Meena and couldn’t effectively discharge his duties.
This stand-off has resulted in the ACB having two chiefs.
Despite the Delhi government’s push for an urgent inquiry, the Court has accepted the Centre’s request for a week’s time to reply to the allegations made. The hearing has been scheduled for August 27th.
