A Delhi Court directed the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to submit a Status Report on a criminal case brought by BJP MP Manoj Tiwari, accusing Delhi Health Minister Satyender Jain of Fraud.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Ravindra Kumar Pandey stated, “The complainant by way of the present complaint requested to conduct enquiries regarding the role and involvement of Sh. Satyender Jain, (PWD Minister, Govt of NCT), Shashikant, Engineer in Chief, PWD, GNCT, Delhi, Sanjeev Rastogi Chief Engineer, PWD, GNCT, Delhi, while awarding tender to ‘M/s. SAM (India) Buildwell Pvt Ltd.’ for setting up of seven temporary hospitals.”

The Court further issued the Order directing the ACB Director to file the Status Report by October 9.

Tiwari had alleged that there was a big fraud in the awarding of the Public Works Department tender for the establishment of seven temporary hospitals.

Tiwari claimed that the project was awarded for Rs 1,256 crore against an estimated value of Rs 1,216 crore in a single day without obtaining the sanction of the projects by the Delhi Government.

Tiwari alleged that on the day Shashikant retired, he approved three tenders in favour of the Company without verifying its bidding capability, and at that time, the project was not legally sanctioned by the Delhi Government as per law.
