ED Conducts Search At AAP MP Sanjay Singh Residence In Excise Policy Case; Kejriwal Said This

New Delhi: An Enforcement Directorate (ED) raid is underway at the residence of Aam Aadmi Party Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh in connection with excise policy case.

Earlier in May this year, MP Sanjay Singh in a letter to Finance Secretary T V Somanathan said that the ED Director and Assistant Director deliberately linked his name to the alleged liquor scam without any basis, tarnishing his public image and defaming him.

Singh mentioned that his name was added on the basis of statements from Dinesh Arora.

Singh also alleged that the officers misused their position and tarnished his public image. Singh demanded prosecution against them.

AAP leader Sanjay Singh said he had already sent a legal notice to the officers to issue an open and public apology.

According to ED sources, the name of the AAP leader appears four times in the ED charge sheet out of which one reference was wrong and typed inadvertently.

At one place Sanjay Singh's name was mentioned instead of Rahul Singh who was then excise commissioner.

Nothing will be found: Kejriwal

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal  said:  "Nothing will be found at his residence. 2024 elections are coming and they know that they will lose. These are desperate attempts by them. As elections near, all agencies like ED, CBI will get active." 

The AAP on Wednesday alleged that the Enforcement Directorate has targeted its Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh as he raised issues related to the Adani Group in Parliament. The party was reacting to the ED raids on the premises of Singh in connection with the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case.
