The former chief minister of Delhi Sheila Dixit will be questioned in the water tanker scam on August 26th.
The ACB Joint Commissioner of Police Mukesh Kumar Meenaon Thursday said “we’ve issued notice to Sheila Dixit ji for questioning on 26th Aug in connection with Water tanker scam case.”
When media questioned Dixit on summon, she replied “I had received a letter from ACB saying I’ll be summoned in August. Haven’t received any info on specific date as yet.”
Earlier this week,the ACB questioned Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra for two hours in the Rs 400 crore water tanker case during which, he said, he was asked not even once about the then Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s alleged involvement.
Mishra said the whole focus of the anti-corruption body seemed to be on framing him or Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the case.
Through a Twitter post, Mishra said he was questioned by six ACB officers — comprising a Deputy Commissioner of Police, two Assistant Commissioners of Police and three Inspectors.
“Not even a single question (asked) about Sheila Dikshit or her tenure about which the entire report is. Only focus was to frame me or Arvind Kejriwal,” Mishra tweeted.
“One DCP, 2 ACPs, 3 inspectors, I asked (them) have you read report against Sheila Dikshit sent by me on which FIR has filed. All except one said ‘NO’,” he further tweeted.
Mishra complained against Dikshit on June 13 regarding alleged irregularities in the hiring of 385 stainless steel water tankers by the Delhi Jal Board in 2012 when she was Chief Minister of Delhi.
In another tweet, the Water Minister said: “Seems the ACB is all set (to) give a clean chit to Sheila Dikshit. They are instructed to protect Sheila and frame Kejriwal (in the scam).”
