CBI and ED Mull Implicating Aam Aadmi Party in Alleged Delhi Excise Policy Scam

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) are reportedly considering the possibility of naming the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as an accused in the alleged Delhi Excise Policy scam, which has already led to the incarceration of three party leaders.

During a plea hearing for AAP leader and former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, the Supreme Court raised a pertinent question as to why the AAP had not been implicated as a defendant under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), given that it was purportedly a beneficiary of the alleged scam.

Assistant Solicitor General (ASG) SV Raju informed the Supreme Court on Monday that he had been instructed to convey that the investigative agencies were “contemplating making the Aam Aadmi Party an accused and invoking Section 70 to probe it additionally with respect to vicarious liability.”

This development comes after three prominent Aam Aadmi Party leaders, who are also closely associated with Delhi’s Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, namely Manish Sisodia, Satyender Jain, and Sanjay Singh, have been arrested in connection with the ongoing investigation into the alleged Delhi Excise Policy scam.
