New Delhi : In a major development in Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence renovation row, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday began a preliminary inquiry into alleged financial irregularities in the renovation of CM’s bungalow. This development comes in response to mounting concerns and accusations related to the refurbishment project.
“A preliminary investigation is not a criminal case but the beginning of a criminal investigation. If CBI finds evidence during the probe then it will register a regular case or a criminal case,” said the investigating agency officials.

The CBI officials asked the Delhi PWD to submit all the documents related to the renovation of the CM’s residence. The probe agency directed officials to submit all the files by October 3.
The CBI will investigate whether there was unnecessary expenditure or financial irregularities in the renovation of the CM residence.

The investigation, which officially began today, aims to shed light on the entire renovation process, including financial transactions, procurement of materials, and adherence to legal and ethical norms. It follows claims of discrepancies and alleged improprieties in the renovation of the Chief Minister’s residence.

CBI officials are expected to scrutinize documents, gather evidence, and interview individuals involved in the renovation project to ascertain the accuracy of the allegations. The agency is committed to conducting a fair and impartial inquiry into the matter.

The initiation of this investigation has sparked considerable public interest, with many eagerly awaiting the outcome and findings of the CBI’s probe. As one of the premier investigative agencies in the country, the CBI’s involvement adds a significant layer of scrutiny to the situation.

The government and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal have expressed their cooperation with the investigation, emphasizing their commitment to transparency and accountability. They have pledged to extend full support to the CBI throughout the inquiry process.

The investigation into the alleged irregularities in the renovation of CM Arvind Kejriwal’s residence underscores the importance of maintaining the highest standards of governance and ethics in public office. The CBI’s findings will play a crucial role in determining whether any legal actions or corrective measures are warranted in this matter.

Opposition BJP termed the matter as a ‘Sheesh Mahal’ row after bills of expenditure in Delhi CM residence renovation surfaced. The party staged protests on several occasions demanding a probe into the alleged scam.
