In the case of Singla’s commission, now the tenders of Mohalla Clinics have also come under scrutiny. Investigation is being done about whether bribe was taken from the contractors who have taken these tenders. For this, the records of 3 months’ call details of the minister and OSD nephew are being searched after extracting the records.
