Nearly three months after the Delhi High court sought details on the MCD and Delhi Police personnel posted at the entry and exit points of Sainik Farms area, police Wednesday informed the court the duty roster of the police station concerned had been “destroyed” in 2013.
The police, in their affidavit, named 130 police personnel posted at the Sainik Farms police post between 2001 and 2008, while claiming the full list could not be compiled. The high court had issued directions to police and the South Delhi Municipal Corporation in April to submit data on persons deployed in the area between 2001 and 2016.
The court had in April indicated it would issue directions to the CBI to investigate the alleged corruption in allowing illegal construction in the area. The MCDs told the court compiling lists of employees was taking time, as the data pertained to the time before trifurcation of the civic body. The court allowed them to file the reports within two days.
