ED Raids 35 Places Across Delhi, Punjab, Hyderabad In Liquor Policy Case

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate today launched fresh raids at 35 locations in Delhi, Punjab and Hyderabad, deepening its money laundering probe into alleged irregularities in the now-scrapped Delhi liquor policy.

Teams from Delhi are searching premises linked to liquor companies, distributors and supply chain networks in these states.

Delhi CM and AAP Chief Kejriwal slammed the centre for the raids. He took to Twitter- “More than 500 raids, since 3 months more than 300 CBI/ED officers are working 24 hours – one to find evidence against Manish Sisodia. Can’t find anything. because nothing was done.”

Liquor businessman Sameer Mahendru was arrested last week by the probe agency which has conducted several rounds of raids in the case. His arrest came a day after Vijay Nair, AAP’s communications chief and a close aide of Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, was arrested by the CBI.

The raids stem from the recent excise policy case that surfaced from the CBI FIR in which Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and some Delhi government bureaucrats have been named as accused.
