NEW DELHI- A Delhi court on Wednesday directed the CBI to release documents seized during searches at the office of Rajendra Kumar, principal secretary to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, and his staff.

While disposing of an application filed by the Delhi government seeking release of some of the documents seized by the agency during its raid on December 15 last year, Special CBI Judge Ajay Kumar Jain said, “directions have been given to release the documents”.

“The application dated December 21, 2015, filed by the Government of NCT of Delhi is disposed of. CBI is directed to release the documents in terms of para number 8 of the order,” the judge said while pronouncing the order.

The plea, filed through the government’s standing counsel Rahul Mehra and Richa Kapoor, also sought initiation of “stringent action against officials responsible for raiding in mala fide manner the Delhi government office and seizing documents to cause immense dislocation of work”.

The CBI denied Kejriwal’s claim that it raided the chief minister’s office.
