Lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung on Monday appointed senior Delhi Police officer Mukesh Kumar Meena as the chief of the Capital’s anti-corruption branch, straining further the already troubled ties with the Kejriwal government.
Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia alleged a conspiracy and questioned credentials of Meena, who took over his new assignment late in the night. A government spokesperson said they had not been informed about the appointment that took many by surprise.
Several officials, however, said the government was informed and had cleared the transfer. Sources said the L-G’s decision could be challenged in the court as early as Tuesday.
