New Delhi:  The difficulties of former Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia are increasing as after CBI the ED arrested him on Thursday after about 8 hours of questioning in the case related to the Delhi liquor scam. 

The Enforcement Directorate questioned Manish Sisodia for the second round in Tihar Jail in connection with its probe into a money laundering case related to alleged irregularities in the Delhi government’s liquor excise policy. The central probe agency had earlier interrogated Sisodia for five hours on March 7.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sisodia on February 26 for alleged corruption in the formulation and implementation of the Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22. 

The new liquor policy was canceled by LG Vinay Saxena. Sisodia is currently lodged in Tihar Jail under judicial custody. The ED got permission from a local court to interrogate the former deputy chief minister of Delhi.      

The ED is likely to question Sisodia about the alleged replacement and destruction of cell phones in his possession and the policy decisions taken as Excise Minister of Delhi and the timing of their implementation.
