Taking action, Delhi's Anti Corruption Bureau team has arrested three people including AAP MLA's PA and relative.

A case of ticket rigging has come to the fore in the MCD elections in Delhi. Delhi's Anti Corruption Bureau team has taken major action. The Anti-Corruption Bureau has arrested AAP MLA's PA Vishal Pandey and relatives Shiv Shankar Pandey and Om Singh. All three are accused of demanding Rs 90 lakh from a woman to get her a corporator's ticket. 

Actually, the whole matter pertains to ward number 69 of Kamla Nagar. AAP worker Shobha Khari sought a ticket from the party. It is alleged that MLA Akhilesh Pati Tripathi demanded Rs 90 lakh in exchange for getting the ticket. The woman gave Rs 35 lakh to MLA Akhilesh and Rs 20 lakh to Wazirpur MLA Rajesh Gupta for the ticket.

It is alleged that it was decided to give the rest of the amount after the name appeared in the list. The woman's name did not figure in the list of Aam Aadmi Party. On this, the woman demanded the return of the money from MLA Akhilesh's brother-in-law Om Singh. Om Singh assured the woman to return the money.

Later the woman complained to the Anti-Corruption Bureau. The victim woman also gave the video to the bureau. After this the team laid a trap and on the night of November 15, Om Singh along with his accomplice Shiv Shankar Pandey and Prince Raghuvanshi reached the victim woman with a bribe of Rs 33 lakh. The team members already present here caught the three red handed with the cash.

Two MLAs are also involved in the bribery scandal

BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri said in the Bidhuri case that not only my allegation, Rs 33 lakh (bribe amount) has already been recovered, the accused (AAP MLA's brother-in-law) has been arrested Has gone I am sure two more MLAs are also involved, I got a call from him (Gopal Khari) that I have been cheated.
