Delhi liquor policy case: Manish Sisodia alleges ED arrested his PA after raiding his house | Delhi News 4/5 (1)

NEW DELHI: Launching a scathing attack on the BJP, Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday alleged that the Enforcement Directorate arrested his personal assistant after raiding his house.
"They filed an FIR against me on false allegations and raided my house but found nothing. Today, they raided my PA's house and when they found nothing there as well, they arrested him," Sisodia alleged in a Twitter post.

Sisodia said that the BJP is afraid of the Aam Aadmi Party and is facing a certain defeat in the elections and that's why the saffron party is indulging in such pressure tactics.
Meanwhile, the probe agency questioned Sisodia's PA in connection with its money laundering probe into alleged irregularities in the now scrapped excise policy, officials said.
The agency is questioning Devendra Sharma and recording his statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), they said.
The ED has conducted multiple raids in this case so far. In September, it arrested Sameer Mahandru, managing director of a liquor manufacturing company named Indospirit.
The money laundering case stems from a CBI FIR that had named Sisodia as an accused among others. The CBI had raided the premises of the deputy chief minister and some Delhi government bureaucrats after filing the case.
The excise scheme came under the scanner after the Delhi LG recommended a CBI probe into the alleged irregularities in the implementation of Delhi's Excise Policy 2021-22. The LG had also suspended 11 excise officials.
