CBI to probe assault plaint against DIG

New Delhi, October 13

The CBI has initiated a fact-finding inquiry into allegations of its public prosecutor that a DIG punched him in the face for delaying the submission of a report pertaining to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s private secretary Rajinder Kumar.

The issue came to light during a court hearing, where public prosecutor Sunil Verma said he had filed a complaint against DIG Raghavendra Vatsa for punching him in the face, agency sources said, adding that the court has summoned the DIG on October 19.

DIG Vatsa had given an official complaint on October 8 to his seniors against Verma, alleging misbehaviour, lackadaisical attitude towards work and absence from office, sources said. The next day, Verma came to the DIG’s office where he allegedly misbehaved with Vatsa and was taken away by other officers, the sources added.

Verma had said he visited the DIG office on October 9 where the officer punched him for delay in framing of charges against Kumar in connection with a corruption case against him. — TNS
