Delhi government sends chargesheet against Meena to CVC

New Delhi, Sep 15 (IANS) The Delhi government on Tuesday forwarded the chargesheet against Anti-Corruption Branch chief Mukesh Kumar Meena to the CVC in a case of buying curtains on higher rates for a police training college in 2005.

Meena was principal of the college when the curtains were purchased.

“On June 18, the Delhi government had received a complaint (from retired inspector Jawahar Lal, who was posted with the Police Training college in 2005) regarding the purchase of curtains and curtain rods at higher prices,” a government official told IANS.

“Today, we have forwarded the complaint to the CVC (Central Vigilance Commission) after inquiry,” he said.

In his capacity as principal of the (Police Training) college that year (2005), Meena procured curtain and curtain rods for approximately Rs.20 lakh, though there is no record on the basis of which the demand was projected, the complaint made by Jawahar Lal said.

The complaint further alleged several deviations from the established norms and procedures.

“An inquiry report found out that the price of curtains that were bought was between Rs.50 and Rs.75 per metre, they were bought at a uniform price of Rs.590 per metre,” the Delhi government official said.

“As many as 322 bills of less than Rs.5,000 were fabricated to avoid the need of issuing tender,” he said, adding, that all the bills had same date and mentioned a non-exitent company.

The complaint claims that several senior police officials, including then police commissioner K.K. Paul and others, had spoken against the “illegal purchases”.
