AAP’s Sanjay Singh arrested by ED in liquor policy scam

Senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh, a Rajya Sabha MP, was on Wednesday arrested by the Enforcement Directorate here in connection with its money laundering probe linked to the 2021-22 Delhi Excise policy case, in a jolt to Delhi’s ruling party after its third top leader was held by a central agency in over a year.

Leaders and workers of the Delhi BJP had staged a protest near the AAP office on Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg on Wednesday, demanding Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation over developments related to the alleged excise policy scam.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had raided Singh’s residence at North Avenue earlier in the day in connection with its probe into the alleged liquor scam in the Delhi government. The BJP mounted a blistering attack on Kejriwal, accusing him of being the “kingpin” of the alleged liquor policy scam and saying that “handcuffs” are not far away. The protesters were marching towards the AAP office on DDU Marg from ITO when they were stopped by police who put up barricades.

The Delhi government scrapped its excise policy for 2021-22 last year after Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena recommended a CBI probe into alleged irregularities in its implementation. Then deputy chief minister and in-charge of the excise department, Manish Sisodia, was arrested in the alleged scam and is currently in jail.
