Delhi excise policy case: ED arrests Manish Sisodia on money laundering charges | Delhi News – Times of India

Must read

NEW DELHI: In a major setback to the ruling Aam Aadmi Party, the Enforcement Directorate on Thursday arrested senior party leader Manish Sisodia on money laundering charges in connection with its probe into the alleged Delhi liquor policy scam.
The 51-year-old was placed under arrest under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) following his second round of questioning at the Tihar jail, they said.

The agency alleged Sisodia was “evasive” in his replies and was “not cooperating in the probe.”
Sisodia is currently lodged in judicial custody after the CBI arrested him on February 26 in connection with alleged corruption in the formulation and implementation of the now-scrapped Delhi liquor or excise policy for 2021-22.

The first round of Sisodia’s questioning by the ED took place on March 7.
