He said the L-G had the power to sanction the prosecution. Maken said that the L-G and the central government had not taken any action on the report even after more than five months of its submission.

The Shunglu committee submitted its report on November 27, 2016, to the L-G and the central government. The three-member committee, headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General V.K. Shunglu, was set up by the then Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung after the Delhi High Court gave primacy to the L-G in Delhi administrative affairs in August 2016.
