The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), however, said that they did not conduct raids at Kejriwal's office.
A CBI official said that a case has been registered against the secretary to Delhi CM Rajendra Kumar on the allegation of abusing his official position to favour a particular firm in the last few years in getting tenders from Delhi government departments.
"After taking warrants, searches are being conducted in the office and residence of Rajendra Kumar. The allegations against Kumar were raised by member secretary Delhi Dialogue Commission Ashish Kumar Joshi," the CBI official said.
Kejriwal retorted: "CBI lying. My own office raided. Files of CM office are being looked into. Let Modi say which file he wants?"
Kejriwal said that Rajendra was just an excuse as the files at the Delhi chief minister's office were being examined.
In a string of tweets, Kejriwal said that "I am the only CM who dismissed, on my own, a minister n a senior officer on charges of corruption and handed their cases to CBI".
"If CBI had any evidence against Rajender, why didn't they share it wid me? I wud hv acted against him," he said while referring to Kumar, secretary to Delhi CM.
