New Delhi, May 17 (IANS) A court here on Thursday rejected the bail plea of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s nephew Vinay Bansal arrested in connection with an alleged scam worth Rs 6 crore in the Public Works Department (PWD).
Special Judge Sanjay Khanagwal remanded Bansal to 14 days in judicial custody.
Last week, the Anti-Corruption Branch arrested Bansal from his residence in west Delhi’s Pitampura after he failed to give satisfactory replies about a firm.
