Arvind Kejriwal hires 6 Bihar cops to fight corruption
New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided to hire Bihar Police officials for its anti-corruption bureau (ACB) to take on corrupt officials.
TOI reported that Bihar Police recently relieved six of its officers - one deputy Superintendent of Police and 5 inspectors and sub-inspectors - to join the ACB.
The latest development followed a conversation that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had with his Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar in New Delhi.
It also reported that more cops could join the ACB in near future.
This comes amid the turf war between the Centre and AAP government over the jurisdiction of ACB. Ministry of Home Affairs had issued a notification last month stating that ACB doesn't have jurisdiction to arrest Central government employees and Delhi Police officials, which reports to the MHA directly.
