Some documents relating to the Delhi government’s ‘feedback unit’ have been taken by the CBI which had registered a preliminary enquiry to look into alleged irregularities in setting up of the special unit.
Reacting to the development, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He alleged that CBI has “seized” files of the unit.
A team of the investigating agency visited Delhi government offices yesterday and took some files pertaining to the unit, official sources said today.
“A day before Republic Day, Modiji seized all the files of the Delhi government’s feedback unit by sending CBI,” Kejriwal tweeted.
CBI had registered a preliminary enquiry into its setting up under the Vigilance Department, which was allegedly done without the approval of the then Lt Governor Najeeb Jung.
In a recent interview, Jung said the move had alarmed him. He likened it to a “counter IB” unit.
