Vinay, who is the son of Kejriwal's Surender Bansal, was arrested on May 10 by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB). The court had then rejected the application of the ACB for a three-day police remand of Bansal, saying he was not medically fit.

Three FIRs, including one against a company run by Surender Bansal, were registered by the ACB in this case on May 9 last year.

Three companies, including Renu Constructions (owned by the Bansals, and Pawan Kumar), were named in the FIRs.

In a complaint, Rahul Sharma, the of (RACO), had alleged that Kejriwal and PWD misused their office for grant of contracts to Bansal. However, they were not named in the FIR.

RACO, an organisation which claims to monitor construction projects in the national capital, had alleged that a firm linked to Bansal was involved in financial irregularities in building a drainage system in north-west

It had also alleged that the bills sent to the PWD for unfinished works were "false and fabricated".
