In more trouble for Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on Thursday arrested the son of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's brother-in-law in connection with the Public Works Department scam.

Reacting to the early morning arrest of Mr. Bansal, AAP Delhi spokesperson and Greater Kailash MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj said his father had been a contractor of the PWD for about 40 years.

Duty Metropolitan Magistrate Neeti Suri Mishra rejected the ACB's application for three-day police remand of Bansal, a nephew of Kejriwal, saying he was not medically fit.

During questioning, he was evasive and had claimed that he was not an active partner in Renu Constructions, they said.

"This is part of the chain of arrests against AAP MLAs", Sisodia said, adding this will be exposed in the court. The PWD had also said the work had been done well, he said. "Centre and L-G are only taking one work, which is how to trouble AAP leaders", Sisodia told reporters here.

According to three FIRs registered by the ACB against Kejriwal and others on May 8, 2017, the Delhi Government's PWD committed illegitimate favouritism in awarding a tender to Surendra Kumar Bansal's Renu Construction for road and sewer construction projects.

He also said that the IIT- Roorkee had done a third-party audit of the concerned drainage system project and submitted a report.

"After the complaint, the ACB got a separate inquiry conducted by Sri Ram Labs which also said that the work was satisfactory", Sisodia said. However, its senior officers report to the lieutenant governor of Delhi.

He said the contract in question was given to Bansal's company in Januray, 2015 while Kejriwal came to power a month later.

Three FIRs, including one against a company run by Surendra Bansal, father of Vinay Bansal, were registered by the ACB in this case May 9 past year. "Where is the scam?"
