A CBI team on Saturday visited Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s office to seek some records related to the controversial excise policy.
However, Sisodia went on twitter to announce that the CBI was conducting “searches” at his office in the Delhi secretariat. “The CBI has again reached my office today. They are welcome. They conducted raids at my house, searched the locker, made enquiries in my village. Nothing was found then and nothing will be found now because I have done no wrong. Have worked honestly for the education of Delhi’s children,” Sisodia posted on social media.
The CBI officials denied that and said that the sleuths went to accused Sisodia’s office seeking some documents related to the Delhi excise policy. “No search or raid is taking place at the office of the Deputy Chief Minister by the CBI,” officials said. Sisodia is also the minister for the excise department.
The CBI has earlier interrogated the Deputy Chief minister and has filed a chargesheet in the case though Sisodia’s name did not figure in that. Apart from the CBI, the ED is also probing into the case where Delhi government public servants have been accused of favouring a cartel of liqour manufacturers and sellers for pecuniary gains.
