A search is currently taking place at AAP leader Sanjay Singh’s house in relation to the Delhi liquor policy case. Enforcement Directorate officials arrived at the Rajya Sabha MP’s house in Delhi early in the morning.

Sanjay Singh is the latest AAP leader to come under scrutiny from central agencies in the liquor policy case. Manish Sisodia, a former deputy chief minister in the AAP government in Delhi, was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation in February in connection with the same case.

The case revolves around the Delhi government’s liquor policy of 2021, which was later scrapped. The CBI alleges that liquor companies were involved in formulating the policy, which would have resulted in a 12% profit for the firms. The agency claims that a liquor lobby known as the “South Group” paid kickbacks for this purpose. It is alleged that six percent of the proposed profit was funneled to public servants through intermediaries.

The Enforcement Directorate is investigating the alleged laundering of these kickbacks. The BJP has accused the Delhi government of reverting to the old liquor policy to cover up corruption after the new policy was scrapped.

Manish Sisodia has denied any wrongdoing, and his party has called his arrest an “attack on the Delhi model of governance.”
