NEW-DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) carried out a raid at the residence of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Member of Parliament, Sanjay Singh, on Wednesday morning in relation to a money laundering case connected to the Delhi Excise Policy. This operation also involved searches at various other locations associated with individuals linked to the case. Sanjay Singh, aged 51, holds the position of a Rajya Sabha member from AAP.

Prior to the raid, the ED had conducted inquiries involving Singh's staff members and other individuals associated with him regarding the case. Allegations have surfaced regarding the Delhi government's excise policy for the fiscal year 2021-22, suggesting that the grant of liquor licenses favored certain dealers who were purportedly involved in offering bribes to influence the process.

AAP strongly refuted these allegations. Following concerns, the excise policy for the specified year was revoked after the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi recommended an investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Subsequently, a case was registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) based on the recommendations. Notably, The ED's raid signifies a significant development in the ongoing investigation surrounding the alleged financial improprieties linked to Delhi's Excise Policy.
