New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Saturday filed a supplementary charge sheet against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh in the ongoing money laundering investigation linked to the Delhi excise policy case.
Earlier on October 4th, Singh was apprehended by the Enforcement Directorate in relation to the excise policy case.
On November 28, the Delhi court issued a notice to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on AAP Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh’s bail application in connection with a money laundering case related to an alleged liquor irregularities case.
The Special Judge, MK Nagpal of the Rouse Avenue Court, has asked the ED to file a reply by December 6 and listed the matter for hearing on December 6.
Sanjay Singh was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in the case on October 4.The Special Judge MK Nagpal on November 24, extended the judicial custody of Sanjay Singh till December 4.
Appearing for the ED, the Special Public Prosecutor Naveen Kumar Matta apprised the Court that the chargesheet (Supplementary Prosecution Complaint) will be filed in the matter very soon and within the prescribed time limit.
Recently, the Delhi High Court dismissed AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, challenging his remand and arrest in the alleged liquor irregularities case.
ED claimed that Singh and his associates played a part in the Delhi government’s decision to give licenses to alcohol shops and merchants in 2020, causing losses to the state exchequer and violating anti-corruption laws.
ED has previously searched several locations, including the homes and offices of Sanjay Singh’s close associate, Ajit Tyagi and other contractors and businessmen who allegedly benefited from the policy. In its nearly 270-page supplementary charge sheet, the ED has called Sisodia a key conspirator in the case.
The Delhi liquor scam case or the excise policy case pertains to allegations that the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22 allowed cartelization and favoured certain dealers who had allegedly paid bribes for it, a charge that has been strongly refuted by the AAP.
