ED’s Nationwide searches are on in Alleged Delhi Liquor Scam and apparently none is being left out without questioning by the agency.
The searches are pertaining to the liquor sales policy following the arrest of Delhi minister Satyendar Jain around 3 months ago in a money laundering case. Delhi Government’s controversial liquor policy is being investigated by the Central Beaureau of Investigation along with the Enforcement Directorate.
Significantly Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia also challanged the BJP to get him arrested. This was based on a ‘sting operation’ done by the party which has not yet been responded by the BJP.
Today ED is preoccupied conducting searches at 40 locations in various states as part of the investigation over the money laundering which is connected to alleged irregularities in the last Delhi excise policy which has now been withdrawn.
Among the investigation locations spread across multiple states are premises linked to distributors and liquor businessmen along with questioning the people in the supply chain networks in Nellore and some other cities.
As per the officials sources, Delhi-NCR, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu are the states where the ED search is on.
