New Delhi: Investigating Allegations of Irregularities in New Excise department Policy Cases. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday raided the residence of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and three administrative officers. The CBI seized some documents from the house of Sisodia, who was in charge of the Excise department. Fifteen people, including Sisodia, have been accused of violating the Excise policy filed by the CBI. They have been charged with corruption, criminal conspiracy, and account fraud. Other accused include former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Excise Commissioner A Gopikrishna, Deputy Commissioner Anand Tiwari, and Assistant Commissioner Pankaj Bhatnagar.
The CBI has alleged the involvement of liquor companies and middlemen in formulating and implementing the Excise policy. Sisodia’s close associates Amit Arora, Dinesh Arora, and Arjun Pandey were collecting commissions from merchants holding liquor licenses and giving them to the accused. The notice mentions that the liquor baron had paid Rs 0 crore to a company run by Dinesh. Arjun Pandey, one of the accomplices, was allegedly paid Rs 2-4 crore by the businessman.
A source said that the transfer was done in the full legal process to avoid any kind of dispute in the future. For this, a list of seized documents was prepared with common people as witnesses. Apart from this, the investigating team scanned various documents at Sisodia’s house and interrogated him. Multiple teams of CBI have simultaneously raided 7 states including 21 locations in Delhi-NCR. Reacting to Chabao, Sisodia said that he will cooperate with the CBI in the investigation and wanted the truth to come out.
