Money Laundering Probe: ED Searches AAP MP’s Home

Justice Manmeet Pritam Singh Arora. 31

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) carried out searches at the residence of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Member of Parliament (MP), Sanjay Singh, as part of an ongoing investigation into a money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam. This development comes on the heels of a court decision permitting two individuals involved in the case to become approvers.

The probe has also encompassed the questioning of staff members affiliated with Singh. The ED’s actions have drawn attention, given Singh’s vocal stance on issues involving Prime Minister Narendra Modi and business tycoon Adani. However, AAP spokesperson Reena Gupta has dismissed any wrongdoing on Singh’s part, stating that nothing was found in previous searches and nothing is expected to be uncovered this time. The alleged scam revolves around the 2021-22 Delhi government excise policy, which has faced accusations of favoring certain liquor traders through bribery, a charge vehemently denied by the AAP.

The Enforcement Directorate’s searches at Sanjay Singh’s residence signify a significant development in the ongoing investigation into the Delhi excise policy scam. The ED is tasked with probing possible money laundering activities related to the alleged scam. These searches come shortly after a Delhi court allowed two individuals connected to the case, Raghav Magunta and Dinesh Arora, to turn approvers. The court has directed them to cooperate fully with the investigators and share any relevant information.

In response to the ED’s actions, Sanjay Singh, who is a Rajya Sabha member from the AAP, has maintained his innocence. AAP spokesperson Reena Gupta has defended Singh, asserting that previous searches yielded no incriminating evidence and that the current operation is unlikely to unearth anything either. Gupta has suggested that the raids may be a consequence of Singh’s continued questioning of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and business magnate Adani on various issues.

The core of this investigation revolves around the Delhi government’s excise policy for the fiscal year 2021-22. This policy has faced allegations of facilitating cartelization among liquor traders and allegedly favoring specific dealers who were purportedly involved in paying bribes to secure licenses. The AAP, on its part, vehemently denies these accusations, emphasizing that the policy aimed to benefit the people of Delhi.

Sanjay Singh, in a letter to Finance Secretary T.V. Somanathan back in May, contended that his name was unfairly linked to the liquor scam without a valid basis. He asserted that this act tarnished his public image and defamed him. Singh further claimed that the inclusion of his name in the investigation was based on statements from Dinesh Arora.

Coinciding with Supreme Court Hearing: Notably, the ED conducted the searches at Sanjay Singh’s residence on the same day that the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear the bail plea of another AAP leader and former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia, in connection with the excise policy case. This parallel development adds further intrigue to the ongoing legal proceedings surrounding the alleged excise policy irregularities.
