Arvind Kejriwal was once the face of anti-corruption movement in India, but it appears that he forgot to clean up his own house. An independent investigation has revealed that Kejriwal’s brother-in-law Surender Kumar Bansal (deceased) cheated the PWD to the tune of Rs 10 crore by submitting fake documents. Bansal was the owner of a construction company called Renu Construction that was awarded a project by the PWD department. It was a drainage project in Bakoli village along NH-44 in north-west Delhi in 2015. The contract was awarded to Bansal as he had quoted the lowest bid.
However, instigations have revealed that the firm from which Bansal was buying construction material does not even exist. In the papers, the firm is mentioned as Mahadev Impex, but the address provided is bogus and no such company exists at that address. Bills as high as Rs 2 crore were issued in the name of the bogus company and this was paid by the PWD department. It has also been revealed that the anti-corruption bureau in Delhi has already filed an FIR to investigate the alleged scam.
