In the fresh summons, the AAP chief has been asked to appear before the agency on March 4, for questioning into the money laundering probe linked to the excise policy case.
Former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was Wednesday produced in Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court for hearing in the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) case related to alleged Delhi liquor policy scam.
The CBI had arrested Sisodia on February 26 early this year. He is main accused in the case field by the CBI in connection with the alleged irregularities in the planning and implementation of Delhi’s now scrapped Excise Policy.
Following CBI’s arrest, the Enforcement Directorate had also questioned Sisodia in a money laundering probe related to the liquor policy case. He was later sent to an ED custody.
The CBI claims that Sisodia was the key player in the criminal conspiracy. It was he who had been allegedly deeply involved in the formulation as well as the implementation of the said policy so as to achieve the objectives of the said conspiracy.
