Delhi Excise Policy Case: ED Releases Manish Sisodia’s Aide After 10 Hours Of Questioning

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) released Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s personal assistant Devendra Sharma on Saturday after 10 hours of questioning. He was led out the back door, according to sources.

Following raids at five sites in Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR) in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22 money laundering case, the ED questioned Sisodia’s personal aide.

After nearly ten hours of questioning, he was freed. According to Devendra Sharma’s father, Bal Kishan Sharma, the ED team took Devendra with them at about 10 a.m.

In a tweet, Sisodia claimed that the investigation agencies had filed a “false” case against him and that the ED had raided his PA’s home and “arrested” him.

So far, the ED has undertaken many raids in this matter. It arrested Sameer Mahandru, the general director of Indospirit, a liquor production firm, in September.

The money laundering allegation derives from a CBI FIR that listed Sisodia among others as an offender. Following the filing of the complaint, the CBI raided the offices of the deputy chief minister and certain Delhi government employees.

In July, Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena requested that the CBI investigate suspected anomalies in the execution of Delhi’s Excise Policy 2021-22.

According to the ED and the CBI, irregularities were committed while altering the Excise Policy, disproportionate favours were offered to licence holders, the licence price was waived or reduced, and the L-1 licence was prolonged without the agreement of the necessary authorities.
