Kejriwal PA

The Delhi Government on Wednesday suspended Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s Principal Secretary Rajendra Kumar, as the rules state that an official is deemed suspended if he remains in custody for more than 48 hours.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court on Tuesday remanded all five accused, including Rajendra Kumar, to five-day police custody in a corruption case. The CBI had sought 10-day police custody of Rajendra Kumar and four others in connection with this case.

Producing Kumar and other co-accused before the Patiala House Court in New Delhi on Tuesday, the CBI informed that the Principal Secretary was not cooperating during the interrogation.
