New Delhi: The Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) has initiated a probe to examine the role of Delhi government officials and others involved in the Commonwealth Games medical equipment deals.

The CVC has found sufficient documentary evidence on alleged collusion by certain Delhi government officials in executing a number of contracts for a direct enquiry, sources claimed.

The Delhi government had floated tenders to buy items like stretchers, ultrasound therapy machines, wheelchairs, trolley beds and Shortwave Diathermy machines (used to cure
muscle and tissue injuries) among others for the mega sporting event from contractors at allegedly inflated rates.

The enquiry being undertaken by Chief Technical Examination Wing of the Commission will look into tender documents, payment bills, inventory records and papers related to eligibility criteria of the vendors chosen to supply the equipments.

CVC has conducted direct enquiries in 2G spectrum allocation case among others. It is likely to finalise its report within three months.

The Commission is already probing alleged discrepancies in the purchase of air conditioners, furniture and kitchen equipment for Commonwealth Games Village by Delhi Development Authority (DDA).
