3 people have been arrested, including a relative of a Delhi AAP MLA, and the party wants a “unbiased investigation”
Three men, along with a relative as well as a personal secretary of AAP MLA Akhilesh Pati Tripathi, were detained by the Delhi Anti-Corruption Branch for allegedly accepting thousands of dollars from a party member on his behalf in exchange for a ticket to the local body elections. Rajesh Gupta, another AAP MLA, has also been mentioned, and according to the police, they have sound – visual evidence.
The AAP has demanded a “unbiased” probe and “severe action against anybody who may well have misused any position,” blaming the BJP, whose central government oversees the Anti-Corruption Branch and Delhi Police.
“Be sure that they is dishonest if they offer to assist you in obtaining the AAP ticket in exchange for money. The alleged bribe-payer did not receive a ticket in any case. This demonstrates our purity, “Manish Sisodia, deputy chief minister, stated. He said, “In reality, the MLAs never suggested the identity of the individual who was purportedly offered the tickets by some persons.
Om Singh, a relative of MLA Tripathi, PA Shiv Shankar Pandey, as well as Prince Raghuvanshi, a companion, were detained on November 15 as they went to the residence of a party worker to refund Rs 33 lakh of the amount they had stolen because the ticket promise had not been honoured, according to the agency.
Three days later, “the three men were apprehended while they were repaying a bribe sum of Rs 33 lakh” after “police and employees from the anti-corruption department devised a trap at the residence of complainant Gopal Khari.” Under the Prevention of Corruption Act as well as the Indian Penal Code, a case of bribery has been filed.
According to a news release from the agency, “Further inquiry of the matter is being conducted out to uncover the truth and collect evidence.”
