"It is his brother-in-law", Mr. Mishra told reporters at his residence in Civil Lines.Mr. Mishra also came out with two more charges on Monday. Vijender Gupta, leader of the opposition in the Delhi assembly, said that chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, who promised to have a zero-tolerance approach towards corruption, was found to be backing Satyendar Jain despite several corruption cases against him. If decisions are made behind the closed doors then I will not accept them.

The Anti-Corruption Branch on Monday said it will record sacked Delhi minister Kapil Mishra's detailed statement after he alleged that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had influenced the probe into a Rs 400 crore tanker scam.

Mishra had dared the party to sack him even as he fired a fresh salvo at Kejriwal, alleging that a Rs 50 crore deal was made for the AAP chief's brother-in-law, S K Bansal.

Asserting that a bogus bill amounting to Rs 10 crores was made to favour Mr Kejriwal's brother-in-law, Mr Mishra also alleged that during the Punjab polls, there was massive corruption by the AAP in distribution of tickets, including supply of liquor by party members.

Meanwhile, today AAP alleged that a big conspiracy was being hatched against it by the BJP through Mishra and said that Kejriwal would not resign over the "baseless allegations".

Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken wrote to Mr. Baijal saying that a case under provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Criminal Procedure Code should be lodged against Mr. Kejriwal on the basis of charges in the Shunglu Committee report. He is implying that Kejriwal himself invited him to be a witness of him taking a bribe from Satyendar Jain.

The Aam Aadmi Party has suspended Mishra from the party's primary membership. His Aam Admi Party spokesman, Kumar Viswas, rejected the allegation by party lawmaker Kapil Mishra, describing it as an attack by rivals.

He challenged AAP leaders to throw him out of the party.

Denying Mishra's allegations, Jain said that "no such land deal took place" and said he would file a defamation case against Mishra.

In a Press conference at party headquarters, AAP leaders Sanjay Singh, Ashutosh and party spokesperson Dilip Pandey called Mishra's allegations "baseless" saying that he did it "out of desperation" after being removed from the Cabinet.

The BJP delegation submitted documents related to the water tanker scandal to the L-G, claiming that both Sheila Dikshit and chief minister Mr Arvind Kejriwal are responsible for the Rs 400 crore scam. Why isn't he telling us the time and date of visiting Kejriwal's house? "This makes it clear who is behind all this", Sanjay Singh said.
