Delhi Chief Secretary Faces FIR Over Alleged Scandal Involvement Following NGO Complaint

In a startling development, an FIR has been lodged against Delhi’s Chief Secretary, Naresh Kumar, and his subordinate, YVVJ Rajashekar, following orders from a court in Almora, Uttarakhand. The court acted on a complaint by the Pleasant Valley Foundation, an NGO, which accused the officials of orchestrating a break-in at one of its schools to allegedly retrieve and destroy evidence linked to a corruption scandal.

The court accepted the NGO’s complaint on March 2, which detailed an incident that occurred on February 14 in Dadakara village. According to the NGO, four individuals, allegedly sent by the accused officials, forcibly entered the school’s office, vandalized it, and stole documents, files, and electronic storage devices containing evidence of the scandal.

The NGO further alleged that these individuals attempted to coerce the NGO’s joint secretary into signing pre-typed documents brought by them. When resisted, they reportedly stole INR 63,000 from the office. The complaint also mentioned threats made to the NGO officials to withdraw previously filed complaints related to the scandal, with warnings of framing them in criminal charges if they did not comply.

The charges against the Delhi Chief Secretary and his subordinate include serious offenses under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the SC/ST Act, such as dacoity, criminal trespass, criminal conspiracy, intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace, and criminal intimidation.

This case has been registered following a directive to the Govindpur revenue police by Almora’s Chief Judicial Magistrate. District Magistrate Vineet Tomar confirmed the filing of the case, which has now put significant pressure on the involved officials and raised questions about the integrity of administrative operations in governmental departments. Further investigations are underway as the authorities look to untangle the web of allegations and evidence related to this high-profile accusation.
