North Delhi Municipal Corporation Mayor Ravinder Gupta has also ordered a probe into the allegations of graft against the civic body’s officials.

“An enquiry by the Vigilance department has been ordered to find out whether any official of NDMC asked a bribe from any builder in the case,” Gupta said, adding that strict action will be taken against guilty officers and staff members.

Confirming that Deputy Commissioner of NDMC (City zone) Nedunchezhiyan has been “repatriated”, Gupta claimed that most of the Delhi Government ministers were involved in graft cases and “Asim Khan’s graft case is just the tip of the iceberg.
