On Thursday, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members alleged that the arrest of Vinay Bansal, son of Arvind Kejriwal’s brother-in-law, was a move to malign the image of the party and the Chief Minister of Delhi. Vinay Bansal is a partner in a firm that had financial irregularities while building a drainage system in north-west Delhi. His father Surendra Bansal died last year after a brain stroke. He was 60 years old. 

In a press note, Aam Aadmi Party said, “It is a clear case of political use of the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) to malign the name of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.”

“After having failed to find anything against Arvind Kejriwal, his MLAs and his ministers, Modi government stoops low to target Kejriwal’s relatives. They got Kejriwal raided by CBI and Delhi police but did not get any evidence of any wrongdoing. Now, Modi government has turned its attention to Kejriwal’s relatives. Even there, they seem to be unsuccessful in finding anything wrong.” the press note said, reported India Today.

Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari congratulated the work of ACB. “I am happy for the people who are victims of AAP’s corruption and wanted to give up,” he said.


Why was he arrested?

FIR was filed on the basis of a complaint by the Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation (RACO). It is a company that claims to monitor construction projects in Delhi. They alleged irregularities in the grant of contracts for roads and sewer lines in Delhi in 2015-16.

It had alleged that bills sent to PWD for work which was not completed were “false and fabricated”. They claim that the Bansal’s company that overtook the work received the payment but never completed the work.

ACB sources said “The arrest was made after the investigators found during their investigation that fake bills were attached for materials that weren’t even supplied and some of the bills were of companies that do not exist or supply those materials. The company with whom they claimed they had taken materials does not exist and when Vinay was questioned about it, he refused to provide any details,” reported India Today.
