The war of words between former Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB Delhi) chief SS Yadav and the current chief MK Meena went overboard on Wednesday.
The former ACB chief, who also happens to be an additional commissioner of police, went on a rant against Delhi Police in the presence of MK Meena after being censured for carrying the ACB’s FIR book.
Yadav was directed to follow the rules and hand over the FIR book to the SHO, which is when he lost his cool, and even threatened to commit suicide.
Though some reports suggest, Yadav claimed that he did not threaten to commit suicide, but alleged that he was being unfairly targeted by Meena ever since he took charge of the Delhi ACB.
Yadav stated that he kept the FIR book with himself as he thought that it would have been taken away from the ACB’s control.
Delhi government had earlier objected to Meena’s appointment as ACB Chief. Meena’s appointment as ACB chief on the order of Lt Governor had once again ignited a turf war between the Delhi government and the government at the Centre.
Few days back, Lt Governor Najeeb Jung had appointed Meena, the Joint Commissioner of Delhi Police as ACB head superseding Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s hand-picked chief SS Yadav. The Delhi government had recently contended that the Anti-Corruption Branch could register complaints only after a nod from its additional commissioner or the vigilance department’s director or secretary.
