Kejriwal masterminded liquor policy scam, claims ED

Arvind Kejriwal is the mastermind behind the Delhi liquor policy scam. Raju argued that he was directly involved in the implementation of this policy. Vijay Nair lived in a house next to Kejriwal's house. He was the media in-charge of Aam Aadmi Party. He (Vijay Nair) acted as a mediator between the Aam Aadmi Party and the South faction, said Additional Solicitor General Raju.

In return for favoring the Dakshina group, Kejriwal demanded payment from them. Kejriwal demanded compensation from Dakshin Group in exchange for favoring them. Aam Aadmi Party used about 45 crores received from Dakshin Group for its campaign in Goa in 2021-22. The money from Chennai went to Goa via Delhi. This transaction is not only Rs 100 crores. During the argument, SV Raju claimed that a hawala transaction of Rs 45 crore was found and this money was used for campaigning during the Goa elections. He also pointed out that a statement revealed that the money received from Goa came in four ways.

Meanwhile, this time Abhishek Manu Singhvi is defending Kejriwal.

The probe into the Delhi liquor policy case focused on an alleged network of middlemen, businessmen and politicians that investigative agencies have called the “South Group”. The ED alleged that the liquor policy was changed to help the “South Group” of companies and Sisodia took a lenient stance in their interest without any consultation.

ED has already arrested Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and other AAP leaders in connection with the liquor policy scam. 'ED' had so far summoned Kejriwal 9 times for investigation. He had filed a petition in the Delhi High Court seeking protection from ED notices and arrest. After the court rejected their petition, the ED team reached Kejriwal's residence at 10 pm with a search warrant and a notice. Kejriwal was interrogated for two hours before his arrest. His mobile phone was seized during the interrogation. He was arrested after interrogation.
