New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is reportedly upset over the CBI summoning his staff for questioning in connection with its ongoing probe into an alleged corruption case involving a senior Delhi government bureaucrat.
The issue came to fore after Kejriwal tweeted on Tuesday tweeted alleging that his staff was called for questioning.
"The CBI summons Delhi chief minister`s staff `informally` on phone without notice. Staff of other ministers called earlier like this," his tweet said.
The CBI had this morning summoned the staff of Kejriwal`s principal secretary Rajendra Kumar for questioning in connection with a probe into an alleged corruption case against him.
"Two-three members of (Rajendra Kumar) Kumar`s staff were called for questioning," a CBI official was quoted as saying by IANS, on condition of anonymity.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had earlier said the documents seized from the office of Kumar "prima facie reflect criminal conspiracy and criminal misconduct and abuse of official position by the accused persons".
The CBI had conducted a raid on Kumar`s office on December 15 last year at the Delhi Secretariat.
The CBI, however, categorically denied that it called Kejriwal`s staff for questioning.
