New Delhi, July 6: Former Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit has been issued a notice by the Anti-Corruption Branch, controlled by the Central government in the water meter scam, asking her to join the investigations.

The officer said a case was registered with the ACB in 2014 on charges of manipulating the tender process and favoring only one company.

The notice issued by the ACB states: "It appears that you (Sheila Dikshit) are acquainted with facts and circumstances of case and is required to join investigation."

Dikshit, on the other hand, has denied receiving any notice on water tanker scam.

Meanwhile, the ACB on Monday, July 4 questioned Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra for two hours in the Rs 400 crore water tanker case. Mishra then went on to allege that he and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal were being framed.
