AAP Leader Sanjay Singh Arrested by ED in Money Laundering Probe

DAINIK NATION BUREAU : After marathon raids at the residence of senior Aam Aadmi Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has made an arrest. This development is linked to an ongoing money laundering investigation concerning irregularities in the Delhi Excise Policy for 2021-22.

The ED has alleged that Sanjay Singh played a pivotal role in the creation and execution of the now-defunct policy, which is believed to have unfairly favored specific liquor manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers.

In accordance with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, Singh has been apprehended by authorities and is slated to appear before a court in Delhi.

The intricate web of connections in this case involves restaurateur Dinesh Arora, who was identified as being “extremely close” to both Singh and former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia in an ED charge sheet filed in May of this year. Arora, now turned approver for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), was arrested by the ED in July. The ED asserts that Arora played a significant role in the alleged scam and initially crossed paths with Singh, ultimately coming into contact with Sisodia during an event held at his restaurant, Unplugged Courtyard.
