The Enforcement Directorate conducted searches at the residence of AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh on Wednesday as part of their investigation into the Delhi liquor policy case. Sanjay Singh’s name had appeared in an ED chargesheet related to the case. Several other properties connected to the MP were also searched earlier.
A video shared by news agency ANI showed the ED team at Sanjay Singh’s Delhi residence.
Sanjay Singh’s father responded to the searches, stating, “The department is carrying out its work, and we will cooperate. We will await clearance.”
Meanwhile, the AAP alleged that the probe agency was targeting Singh due to his parliamentary discussions on the Adani matter.
Shiv Sena (UBT) Rajya Sabha MP Priyanka Chaturvedi criticized the actions of the ED, writing, “The only dependent allies BJP has in NDA fold are ED, IT, CBI. Condemn the raids being carried out at Sanjay Singh Ji’s home; it’s nothing but intimidation tactics.”
AAP spokesperson Reena Gupta commented on the ED raids, saying, “The ED raid is a result of Sanjay Singh being vocal about the Adani issue and the black money invested in his company. Neither they (ED) found anything earlier, nor will they find anything today. None of us is afraid.”
ALLEGATIONS AGAINST SANJAY SINGH AS PER ED:
According to the ED chargesheet, Delhi-based businessman Dinesh Arora, accused in the Delhi liquor policy scam case, had previously met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at his residence in the presence of Sanjay Singh. Arora stated that he had initially met Sanjay Singh during an event and later came in contact with former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
On Tuesday, a Delhi court permitted Raghav Magunta, son of YSR Congress Party Lok Sabha MP Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy, and Dinesh Arora to become approvers in a money laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi liquor policy scam. Arora has been arrested by both the ED and the CBI.
The liquor policy was annulled after Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena recommended a CBI probe into alleged corruption.
