Trouble for Sheila Dikshit: AAP government re-opens 2002 CNG fitness case


By NewsGram Staff Writer

The “CNG fitness scam” which took place under the watch of the Sheila Dikshit government, has been re-opened by Delhi government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB).

“The ACB is reopening the 2002 CNG Fitness Scam in which top three babus, who had worked under Sheila Dikshit government, are under scanner,” top government sources said.

Arvind Kejriwal, under his previous stint as Chief Minister of Delhi, had assured the CBI that all documents pertaining to the scam would be made available.

During the AAP’s previous 49-day stint, Arvind Kejriwal had said that all documents would be provided to CBI after the probe agency sought some documents pertaining to the scam.

However, with the resignation of Kejriwal, the case probe got stuck.

“As the elected government is now in place in the capital, ACB would probe the matter thoroughly”, said the government sources.

The Aam Aadmi Party had raised the issue of the CNG fitness of 2002 in December last year.

AAP had also attacked the “continuing silence” of the Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and the Central government, on the alleged indictment of top bureaucrats in the city governments by CBI.
