New Delhi [India], Apr. 11 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed a plea of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Government seeking contempt of court proceedings against Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) chief M.K. Meena. The contempt plea alleged that Meena and a Station House Officer (SHO), appointed by him, did not lodge an FIR against two officials of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) who were allegedly caught accepting bribe. The Delhi Government also alleged that Meena had arbitrarily replaced the then SHO of the ACB with another person. It had said that Meena had "willfully violated" the court's June 29, 2015, order, asking the Lt. Governor-appointed ACB chief to act in "accordance with the law". The Delhi Government had alleged the police refused to lodge an FIR into the matter despite SDM's directive. The AAP-led government further alleged that the police let off the accused. (ANI)
