New Delhi: In a stand that is certain to trigger another round of tussle with the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi, Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on Tuesday said that the city’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) functions under his authority, control and supervision.

“This refers to a news item published in a couple of dailies today about reported posting of police officials from Bihar in Delhi’s ACB. The ACB, being a police station, functions under the authority, control and supervision of the Lt. Governor, a position that has also been clarified by the Ministry of Home Affairs, vide notification number 1368 (E), on May 21,” a statement from the LG Office said.

However, the statement said, no proposal on posting of police officials from outside has been received so far.

“The office of the Lt. Governor has so far not received any proposal for deputation of such personnel from outside Delhi Police. The matter will be duly examined as and when the Lt. Governor receives the formal proposal from the Vigilance Department of Delhi government,” the statement added.

According to a media report, six Bihar Police officials have been appointed in the ACB, including one superintendent of police, three inspectors and two sub-inspectors. However, the report said, these officers have not been assigned specific duties.

The developments come amid an escalating turf war between Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. (IANS)

Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

A BJP member Rajesh Kumar has filed a defamation complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for tweeting objectional comments against his party men.

The complaint was filed before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Samar Vishal, who has listed the matter for a hearing on May 16.

Kumar, who claimed to be convenor of legal cell of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) Purvanchal Morcha in Delhi, told the court that he was shocked to see a tweet by Kejriwal saying that BJP members kept roaming around the country and raping Hindu girls.

“The accused (Kejriwal) has successfully dented the reputation of the complainant in particular and his party,” Kumar said in his complaint.

According to Kumar, he came across the tweet on September 30, 2018 and wanted to lodge a complaint immediately, but did not believing that the people would not take it seriously.

However, during Hanuman Jayanti celebrations in his society in April, one lady on realising that he was a BJP leader, taunted him citing the tweet.

There were several such incidents when the complainant had to face embarassment due to the “utterly irresponsible and defamatory tweet by Kejriwal, who holds such high position”, said Kumar in his plea.
