New Delhi, April 11: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed an AAP government plea for contempt of court proceedings against the city’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) chief Mukesh Kumar Mee for not acting as per the law, as ordered by court. “... it is not necessary for this court to go into the correctness of the allegations in the contempt case and to return a finding as to whether the conduct of the respondents (ACB chief Mee and an SHO) would amount to willful disobedience of the order of this court. Accordingly, the contempt case is dismissed,” a division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant th said. The government plea had accused Mee of hindering ACB functioning and violating the High Court’s June 29, 2015, order that asked the ACB chief, a Lt. Governor’s appointee, to act in “accordance with the law”. The contempt plea also alleged that Mee arbitrarily replaced the then Station House Officer of the ACB by another person and did not lodge an FIR against two Delhi Development Authority officials allegedly caught accepting bribe.
