After Najeeb Jung has resigned from his post of Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has landed in troubled waters with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Reportedly, Najeeb Jung has referred CBI to look into seven matters after the submission of the Shunglu committee report.

The Economic Times quoted a senior CBI official saying that seven matters had been referred to it for a probe, out of which FIRs had been registered in two matters and a preliminary enquiry marked into another one.


Furthermore, all these matters had emerged from the Shunglu committee report and CBI was “looking into” the four other matters before taking a decision, the official said.

According to the reports, two FIRs are the ones lodged by the CBI against Delhi AAP MLA and former Chief of the Delhi Waqf Board Amatullah Khan and another in the appointment of Nikunj Aggarwal as an officer on special duty (OSD) to Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain
The CBI official did not disclose the particulars of the other five matters, one of which has also led to a preliminary enquiry.



It has been reported that Shunglu committee scrutinized 400 files and observed that there has been a “colourable exercise of power” on the part of AAP government and had pointed to some serious and glaring irregularities, sources say.


The report was submitted to then LG Najeeb Jung on November 27 and is yet to be made public. Jung had set up the Shunglu committee in August after the Delhi HC ruled that the LG is the administrative head of Delhi and declared decisions taken by Delhi government without consulting the LG illegal.
