Spl Secy (Vigilance) says legal notice sent by NGO against him ‘fabricated’

New Delhi: Special Secretary (Vigilance) Y V V J Rajasekhar on Thursday alleged that a legal notice sent by an NGO against him was “fabricated” and was circulated with “various vested interests”.

The Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer has written to Justice Ranjana Prakash Desai, the chairperson of the Press Council of India (PCI), and the Union home secretary over the matter.

It has been claimed that NGO Abhinav Samaj had sent the legal notice to the Delhi government demanding action against Rajasekhar over charges of “corruption, forgery and harassment”.

However, the NGO’s chairman, GK Gupta, said he has written to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the “fake” legal notice. “The fake notice sent on behalf of our

organisation is fictitious and made with malafide intention. No such notice was issued by Abhinav Samaj. If there is any notice/complaint in name of Abhinav Samaj, kindly investigate the matter as to how our letterpad and name of Abhinav Samaj is used for false complaint with malafide intention,” he said.

Rajasekhar also urged the Union home ministry to refer the matter for either a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

“It is requested that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), GoI (Government of India) may kindly consider for entrusting this matter to CBI/ED and other investigating agencies as the vested interests stakes are unfathomable and requires wider investigation by the specialised agencies that has jurisdiction to deal with intrastate and inter-state conspiracies,” Rajasekhar said in his letter to the MHA and Justice Desai.

The 2012-batch IAS officer, who was overseeing various sensitive cases related to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, renovation of the chief minister’s official residence and razing of a heritage structure for construction of the DJB chief executive officer house, was divested of his duties on the direction of Delhi Services Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj on May 13.
