The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government on Tuesday transferred Delhi Home Secretary Dharam Pal and sent the order to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung’s office for approval.

According to reports, Pal’s transfer comes hours after he signed a notification which appointed Joint Commissioner of Police M K Meena as the Anti-Corruption Branch’s chief.

Meena’s appointment was made by Jung, who overruled Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s choice.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has alleged that the appointment is in contempt of court, because the Delhi High Court had clarified that the ACB comes under the jurisdiction of the Delhi Government.
