The Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) yesterday questioned Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia for close to three hours in connection with its probe into an alleged recruitment scam in Delhi Commission for Women (DCW). ACB chief Mukesh Kumar Meena said, he was examined and details about the questioning cannot be shared since the matter is under investigation.
A senior ACB officer said, Mr Sisodia was questioned about the letter from his office that had authorised DCW as a body with financial autonomy. Later, Mr Sisodia alleged that the ACB summoning AAP ministers is part of political vendetta against them.
Earlier, the ACB had named Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and DCW chief Swati Maliwal in the FIR registered in the case. It took up the probe on a complaint by former DCW chief Barkha Shukla Singh, who alleged that several AAP supporters were provided plum posts in the women's panel. In her complaint, she listed the names of 85 people, who got jobs without requisite credentials.
