Delhi Lt Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena has ordered an FIR to be lodged against officials of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), a bank, and a private company for alleged embezzlement of 20 crore rupees in water bills.

The Lt Governor directed the Delhi chief secretary Naresh Kumar to have an FIR lodged in the matter against the DJB and bank officials after identifying them as well as the private entities involved.
