The CBI has started probe into alleged irregularities in the construction of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal new home in the city’s civil lines area.
The agency has started inquiry in alleged violation of tender rules in the construction of the house.
The inquiry has been filed against "unknown public servant(s) of the Government of Delhi", NDTV reported.
“If the preliminary inquiry reveals a prima facie case the agency will register a police case,” it said.
The report said the agency has written to the Delhi government's Public Works Department to demand "certified copies" of documents detailing construction of the Chief Minister's new home.
The PWD has also been asked to furnish details of payments made to the contractor, it mentioned.
Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party has accused the BJP of "using all its strength to destroy the AAP..."
"So far BJP has filed over 50 cases against Kejriwalji... nothing came out in any of them and nothing will come out of this. No matter how much investigation the BJP does, Arvind Kejriwal will continue to fight for the interests of the common man. Kejriwal has sworn he will make India No 1 in the world and he is ready to pay any price for this," the report quoted AAP statement on the matter.
