New Delhi, December 2: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed an additional prosecution complaint (charge sheet) against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh in connection to the Delhi excise policy case related to alleged money laundering.
Sanjay Singh, an AAP leader, was apprehended by the Enforcement Directorate on October 4 in relation to his purported involvement in the excise policy case and is currently in judicial custody at Tihar Jail.
On November 28, the Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi issued a notice to the Enforcement Directorate on the bail plea of AAP's Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh in a case related to money laundering associated with alleged liquor irregularities. The court has sought a response from the ED by December 6 and scheduled the hearing for the same date.
Sanjay Singh's judicial custody was extended by Special Judge MK Nagpal until December 4 on November 24. Enforcement Directorate's Special Public Prosecutor Naveen Kumar Matta informed the court that the chargesheet (Supplementary Prosecution Complaint) would be submitted within the stipulated time frame.
The Delhi High Court recently dismissed the appeal made by AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, contesting his arrest in the alleged liquor irregularities case.
The ED has alleged that Sanjay Singh and his associates played a role in the Delhi government's decision to grant licenses to liquor shops and merchants in 2020, purportedly causing losses to the state exchequer and breaching anti-corruption laws.
The investigative agency has conducted numerous searches, including those at the residences and offices of Sanjay Singh's close associate Ajit Tyagi, along with other contractors and businessmen who allegedly benefitted from the policy. The agency's extensive 270-page supplementary charge sheet implicates Sisodia as a key conspirator in the case.
