The New Delhi Police has launched an anti-graft investigation into allegations that the city’s Chief Minister is linked to a former police officer, the Times of India newspaper reported, citing sources familiar with the probe.
In a press conference on Thursday, the Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, was asked about the probe and whether he had anything to say about it, the paper reported.
He said he was unaware of the probe, but if it’s found out, he would tell the truth.
Sources told the paper that there are two people who have been named as being involved in the alleged corruption.
The chief minister did not comment on this.
Police sources told the newspaper that an inquiry had already been launched into the alleged links between the former police officers and the Chief Ministers son, and the chief minister has directed the CBI to conduct a thorough probe.
According to the report, the investigation will take a year.
