"Deputy Superintendent of Police Sanjay Bharti has joined Delhi ACB," a senior government official said.

When asked about reports of Bharti refusing to join the ACB earlier, the official said he had never rejected the posting. "He had never refused to join Delhi ACB. He could not join the ACB earlier due to health reasons. But now he has joined," the official added.

Earlier this month, induction of five Bihar policemen in Delhi ACB had triggered turf war between the Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and the AAP Government.

Last week, ACB chief MK Meena, who was appointed by Jung, had written to LG saying that postings of the Bihar policemen in the anti-graft body by Delhi government were in violation of section 3 of the Police Act, 1888.

As per the act, transfer and posting of police officers between two states require approval from the Central government.
