In yet another major setback to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Friday reached Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia's house and recorded his statement in a case related to the AAP's ‘Talk to AK’ campaign.
"The CBI visit to Manish Sisodia’s house is to seek clarification on certain issues relating to an ongoing enquiry," one CBI official was quoted as saying by a news agency.
Sisodia was under the CBI scanner for alleged irregularities in AAP government’s social media campaign “Talk to AK”.
"Talk to AK", the maiden interactive session of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, was held on July 17 last year.
The CBI had also registered a preliminary enquiry (PE) against Sisodia on the basis of a complaint filed by Vigilance Department of the Delhi government.
Earlier, in January, the CBI had registered two preliminary enquiries — one against Sisodia and the other against Saumya Jain, daughter of Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain.
