Facing ire of the Delhi Government for the raid conducted on the Delhi Secretariat, the CBI has said that it would be producing search cum seizure memo containing details of all seized items from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajender Kumar before the competent court.

The CBI has said that seizures during the searches at all 14 places were in the presence of independent witnesses as per procedure laid down by the law.

Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary was questioned again by the CBI on Wednesday in connection with a corruption case. Kumar was questioned by the CBI for about seven hours late last night after the probe agency sleuths raided his Delhi Secretariat office.

Kumar has been booked under Sections of IPC on charges of criminal conspiracy and under various Sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act for allegedly favouring a private company in five contracts worth 9.5 crore rupees during 2007 to 2014.

The CBI carried out searches at 14 places connected with Kumar in the national capital, including his residence, and various locations in Uttar Pradesh.
