On 20th January, the Delhi Government said that their claims about CBI raid on Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s office on December 15 has been proved right in the court of law as the special court stated in favor of them.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that the court’s directive had proved that the CBI intended to raid the chief minister’s office (CMO) and the raid was not related to corruption allegations against Kejriwal’s principal secretary Rajendra Kumar.

Earlier AAP had came up strongly against the raid stating it to be politically motivated move by the center and mentioning it was not the raid on the office of Rajendra Kumar, Principal Secretary to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal but on the CM’s office itself, and took matter to the court.

As per the Indian Express “In Parliament, it was said that the raid was not on the CM’s office. We want to ask whether the Prime Minister will now apologies in front of the country? It was an attempt to discredit the government… he should apologies for the politically motivated raid. His officers had misinformed him… they took random files on the pretext of a raid,” said Sisodia.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal twitted “After today’s CBI court order directing release of docs seized from CMO, PMO owes an explanation to the nation since CBI reports to PM”

However today 21st January, CBI has moved to Delhi High Court against the direction by the special court to return the documents seized by it during the raid.
The bench of justice B D Ahmed and Sanjeev Sachdeva has allowed the petition to be heard.

It has been observed over the years that CBI is often misused by the Centeral Government for various political gains may that be any party or government. This seems to be another such move, let us wait and watch what PMO and Delhi High Court has to say on this. We hope there is no misuse of CBI, it is already under pressure, let it be put to best use.
