New Delhi: The Kejriwal led Delhi government suffered a major setback on Monday, as the Delhi High Court ruled that Mukesh Kumar Meena, the police officer appointed to head Delhi’s Anti-Corruption Bureau or ACB, must be allowed to access his office.
Mr Meena, a Delhi Police joint commissioner, was deputed two weeks ago to the anti-corruption agency by Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung.
Chief Minister Kejriwal, whose government is in the midst of a vigorous war for control with the Lieutenant Governor, had already handpicked a candidate for ACB chief, SS Yadav, another senior police officer. Meena outranks Yadav.
Last week, Yadav accused Meena of threatening his life, while Kejriwal and his ministers alleged that Meena has been soft on tackling graft.
