Arrested Delhi councillor caught on tape telling builder ‘ab hamari source of income salary nahi hai’: CBI



NEW DELHI: South Delhi councillor Manoj Mehlawat, arrested by the CBI for allegedly taking Rs 10 lakh bribe from a builder, was caught on tape telling the complainant that “ab hamari source of income salary nahi hai…aise hi hoga (now salary is not my source of income…it will be like this only”, the agency has claimed.
The BJP has suspended Mehlawat from its primary membership after his arrest last week.
The Councillor’s remarks were caught on tape during a covert verification exercise by the CBI into the allegations against him.
The builder had approached the CBI alleging that Mehlawat had repeatedly called him on phone demanding Rs 10 lakh as bribe to allow the construction of a house in the posh Vasant Kunj area without any hindrance.
The councillor threatened the builder that he could not only demolish the ongoing construction project but also not allow him to “lay a single brick” in future.
