New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday granted bail to chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s relative Vinay Bansal in a case related to the alleged Public Works Department (PWD) scam.

Additional session Judge Kamini Lau granted relief to Mr Bansal, a nephew of Mr Kejriwal, on a personal bond of Rs 2 lakhs with one surety of like amount, lawyer B. S. Joon, appearing for the accused, said.

 

Mr Bansal, the son of  Mr Kejriwal’s late brother-in-law Surender Bansal, was arrested on May 10 by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB). Three FIRs, including one against a company run by the chief minister’s brother-in-law Surender Bansal, were registered by the ACB in this case on May 9 last year.

Three companies, including Renu Constructions (owned by Bansal, Kamal Singh and Pawan Kumar), were also named in the FIRs.

In a complaint, Rahul Sharma, founder of NGO Roads Anti-Corruption Organisation (RACO), had alleged financial irregularities in building a drain in north-west Delhi and accused Mr Kejriwal and PWD minister Satyendra Jain of misusing their office to grant the contracts to Vinay Bansal.

 

However, they were not named in the FIR.
