"We have served a notice to Sheila Dikshit," ACB chief MK Meena said.

ANI referred to Meena as saying, "It appears that you (Sheila Dikshit) are acquainted with facts and circumstances of the case and are required to join the investigation."

A report of a fact-finding panel on the alleged 400-crore water tanker scam linked Dikshit to the scam. It suggested that "the acts of omission and commissions by the Delhi Jal Board under Dikshit has resulted in loss of approximately Rs 400 crore to the exchequer," Meena said.

AAP leader Kapil Mishra, who complained against Dikshit on 13 June, is reportedly not cooperating with the inquiries and investigation. "The notice indicates as if an order has been given to the ACB to behave politely with Sheila Dikshit. If she feels bad, then she might expose all the scams of the BJP," Mishra told ANI.

The case was registered in the Anti Corruption Branch in 2014.
