The agency is set to present Arora in a special court here later today and request his custody in connection with its ongoing investigation into the Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22 money laundering case. Arora’s name is named as an accused in both the ED and the CBI cases, along with Dinesh Arora, another director of Buddy Retail Pvt Ltd. Manish Sisodia, the then-Excise Commissioner Arva Gopi Krishna, Deputy Commissioner Anand Tiwari, and Assistant Commissioner Pankaj Bhatnagar are among the other suspects.
Manoj Rai, a former Pernod Ricard employee; Amandeep Dhal, director of Brindco Sales; and authorised signatures of Mahadev Liquors Sunny Marwah, Arun Ramchandra Pillai, and Arjun Pandey are also named as defendants.
The decision comes just days after the agency filed its first chargesheet in the Delhi excise policy money laundering case before a court in the national capital, naming liquor businessman Sameer Mahandru as one of the accused.
The agency stated that it has conducted 169 searches in this matter since taking cognizance of a CBI FIR that was launched on the recommendation of the Delhi Lieutenant Governor.
