The Enforcement Directorate is conducting searches at the home of AAP MP Sanjay Singh in Delhi.
The Enforcement Directorate searched AAP MP Sanjay Singh’s home on Wednesday in connection with a money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, a day after a court authorized two accused in the case to become approvers. PTI said that several other premises of connected people were also being monitored.
The ED had previously questioned the Rajya Sabha member from the Aam Aadmi Party and people connected to him in this issue.
“Raids are being conducted at Sanjay Singh’s residence because he has been continuously raising questions about PM Modi and Adani.” Nothing was discovered previously, and nothing will be discovered today,” AAP spokesman Reena Gupta said.
The Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22, which grants licenses to liquor traders, is said to have facilitated cartelization and favored particular dealers who reportedly paid bribes for it, a claim strenuously denied by the AAP.
Raghav Magunta, son of YSR Congress Party Lok Sabha MP Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy, and Delhi-based businessman Dinesh Arora were granted approval by a Delhi court on Tuesday in a money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi excise policy fraud.
Magunta and Arora were both pardoned by Special Judge M K Nagpal, who also ordered them to help with the inquiry and provide all information they had regarding the crime to the investigators.
Earlier in May, Singh wrote to Finance Secretary T V Somanathan, alleging that the ED Director and Assistant Director purposefully linked his name to the suspected liquor scam, ruining his public image and defaming him. Singh stated that his name was added based on Dinesh Arora’s claims.
The raids were carried out at Singh’s apartment on the same day that the Supreme Court is due to hear the bail application of AAP leader and former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia in an excise policy case.
