Delhi Police launches probe against Arvind Kejriwal's brother-in-law
Delhi Police have registered a preliminary enquiry into a case in which Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's brother-in-law Surender Kumar Bansal along with others is facing corruption charges.

Allegedly irregularities have been found in the granting of contracts for building roads and laying of sewer lines in Delhi.

The complainant Rahul Sharma has alleged that Bansal, used forged & fake documents to secure contracts with the PWD department of the Delhi government. Along with Bansal, a PWD executive engineer is accused of assisting Bansal in the crime. He has also alleged that the payments have been released even though the work has not been completed.

The police, after completing the preliminary enquiry, will decide whether an FIR should be registered against the accused or not.

The complainant who had filed the case in a court sought registration of FIR against Arvind Kejriwal, his brother-in-law Surender Kumar Bansal and officers of Delhi government's PWD for alleged offences including cheating, forgery and criminal conspiracy.

"The chief minister of Delhi must also be investigated as he has caused the substantive gain to Bansal and his other relatives by using his chief ministerial influence," Bansal has said in his complaint.

The court reserved its order and has listed the matter for February 2. The counsel for the complainant had alleged "deep-rooted corruption" and argued that the documents showed no material was actually purchased for completing the work.
