Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's relative Vinay Bansal was arrested by the Anti Corruption Branch on Thursday, April 10. The accused Vinay Bansal has been identified as Arvind Kejriwal's brother-in-law Surender Bansal's son.

Bansal was arrested from his residence in Pitampura in west Delhi in the morning, after he failed to give satisfactory replies on firm Mahadeo Impacts, Special Commissioner of Police and ACB chief Arvind Deep informed.

It was also alleged that the bills sent to the Public Works Department (PWD) for unfinished works were "false and fabricated".

The ACB registered the case in 2017 against the company Renu Constructions and named Mr. Vinay Bansal's father Surender Bansal and others involved in the company's operations. The complainant had claimed that even the bid and its technical marks were manipulated.
