Delhi: Delhi Government on Tuesday issued a chargesheet against Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) joint commissioner of police Mukesh Kumar Meena to the Central Vigilance Commission(CVC) in the ongoing probe of the alleged Rs 100-crore CNG fitness scam in which a number of officials of the previous Sheila Dikshit Government were under the scanner.

Earlier, the commission of inquiry formed by the Delhi government to probe the multi-crore CNG fitness scam, issued directions for execution of a non-bailable warrant against Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) joint commissioner of police Mukesh Kumar Meena.
The Justice Agarwal Commission was constituted by the AAP-led Delhi government to probe the scam. Several transport department officials and bureaucrats of the former Sheila Dikshit government have been accused in the scam.

Meena, the LG-appointed ACB chief, had been conducting a parallel probe into the scam and has recently filed a chargesheet on the case naming nine officials, including two bureaucrats, after Jung had declared the Justice Agarwal Commission invalid on the union home ministry’s directions.

The Rs.100 crore CNG Fitness Scam was unearthed by RTI activist Vivek Garg who alleged that the contract for conducting lane test of commercial vehicles before granting fitness certificates was granted to ESP India without inviting any tender in 2002.
