Tanker Scam: ACB records Mishra’s statement, intensifies probe

New Delhi: As AAP’s shacked minister Kapil Mishra produced some proofs on alleged tanker scam, the Anti-Corruption Branch of Delhi Police swung into action and recorded the statement of former water minister.

Kapil Mishra, who labeled allegations against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for hushing up the scam. ACB officials have cross-examined his statements for veracity and also recorded them, the Times of India reported. This was his second visit to ACB office.

A few days ago, he had shared some evidence related to the tanker scam with the ACB officials. The scam dates back to the reign of Sheila Dikshit as Delhi chief minister. Mishra alleged that Kejriwal tried to shield her by intentionally delaying the probe into the scam. In 2015, the Kejriwal-led government had constituted a fact-finding team to probe the alleged irregularities in procuring nearly 400 water tankers by DJB.

In June 2016, an FIR was registered in the case in consultation with the then Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung.
