DDCA Row: ‘Super Cop’ Gill Trains Gun at Jaitley


New Delhi: In a new twist to the DDCA row, former top cop KPS Gill has sent a complaint letter to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal accusing Finace Minister Arun Jaitley of illegally appointing, daughter Sonali Jaitley as the counsel of Hockey India and facilitated huge amount as her fee.

Jaitley has earlier sued six people including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for Rs 10 crore in a defamation suit for their comments that the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) had seen corruption when it was under Jaitley. The suit did not include BJP MP and former cricketer Kirti Azad who has been at the forefront alleging corruption in the DDCA under Jaitley’s watch.

On December 20, Azad had also released a 28-minute sting video accusing the DDCA of massive financial irregularities under Arun Jaitley. He claimed that a ‘Wikileaks4India’ investigation has revealed that DDCA awarded contracts to fictitious companies and alleged that 14 companies, which got DDCA contracts, were registered under fake addresses.

The video released had footage of a DDCA annual general meeting of 2011-12 that purportedly showed Azad questioning Arun Jaitley, the then DDCA chief, and shows Jaitley defending DDCA office-bearers who were being questioned by Azad.

Azad alleged that DDCA inflated prices of items and services it procured. He also said DDCA did not float tenders before awarding contracts and demanded an investigation by the Enforcement Directorate and Directorate of Revenue Intelligence
