NEW DELHI: As Delhi Chief Minister’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar is being grilled for close to 10 hours on a daily basis in the connection to the corruption charges filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation, the AAP government expressed support for him and alleged that the agency was pressurising Kumar to “reveal the name of the Delhi District Cricket Association official who handed over certain files to the state government”.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday said that Kumar had been “threatened” and “pressurised mentally” by the CBI to disclose the name of said DDCA official.He said one of the files contained a note in which a Union Minister told DDCA officials that he would compound the Serious Fraud Investigation Office crimes against them and stall a probe through the Lieutenant Governor’s office.

Sisodia noted that the questioning so far has shown that Kumar was merely an excuse for the CBI raid at the Delhi Secretariat. “We don’t object to questioning and it should go on and action may be taken if there is any scam. Delhi government will also take action,” the Deputy Chief Minister added.
