Delhi government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) has reopened the alleged CNG fitness scam case of 2002 in which some top officers of the then Sheila Dikshit regime were under scanner.
Official sources said that the top bureaucrats were accused of extending favours to a few companies for issuing fitness certificates to CNG vehicles in the city. The ACB had registered a case in 2012 in the scam involving 100 crore rupee irregularities.
During the AAP’s previous 49-day rule, Arvind Kejriwal had said that all documents would be provided to CBI after the probe agency sought some documents pertaining to the scam.
But, the case probe got stuck as Kejriwal government resigned. Sources said now elected government is in place in the national capital and ACB would probe the case thoroughly.
In December last year, AAP had raised the issue and questioned the silence of the Union Government and Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on the alleged involvement of top bureaucrats in the matter.
