ED raid underway at AAP MP’s residence

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday conducted searches at AAP MP Sanjay Singh’s residence in connection with a money laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, a day after a court allowed two accused in the case to turn approver. Some other premises of linked people were also being covered.

The staff members of the Rajya Sabha member from Aam Aadmi Party and those linked to him were earlier questioned by the ED in this case.

“Since Sanjay Singh was continuously raising questions on the issue of PM Modi and Adani, this is the reason why raids are being conducted at his residence. Nothing was found earlier, nothing will be found today,” AAP spokesperson Reena Gupta said.

It is alleged that the Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22 to grant licences to liquor traders allowed cartelisation and favoured certain dealers who had allegedly paid bribes for it, a charge strongly refuted by the AAP.
