Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia will face anti-corruption bureau on Friday regarding the alleged wrongdoing in recruitment for Delhi Commission for Women.
In the first week of October, the notice was issued to him by the Anti Corruption Bureau.
The role of Manish Sisodia has not been cleared by the ACB yet. But the sources revealed that, ACB wanted to interrogate with Delhi deputy CM in link with a letter that his office issued about the financial autonomy of the DCW.
"During the examination of the documents, the ACB found that there was a letter from the office of Sisodia that had authorised DCW as a body with financial autonomy. As per rules, only the LG can grant financial autonomy to a body. ACB will be questioning him on this aspect," an informed source said.
The complaint was filed by DCW chairperson Barkha Singh Shukla, Congress leader.
Shulkal affirmed that, ‘AAP workers were appointed in the DCW to give them financial benefits.’
An FIR was lodged under Prevention of Corruption Act as well as under sections 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 409 (criminal breach of trust by a public servant) of IPC.
