AAP to be made accused in Excise money laundering case: ED

AAP to be made accused in Excise money laundering case: ED

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) informed the Delhi High Court on Tuesday of its intention to name the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as an accused in the money laundering case linked to the Delhi excise policy scam.

This revelation came as the ED opposed the bail plea of Manish Sisodia, the former deputy chief minister of Delhi, who is implicated in the case. During the hearing before Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma, the ED's counsel asserted, "AAP will be made a co-accused in the next prosecution complaint (charge sheet) to be filed in this matter."

The ED's lawyer also claimed that the accused individuals are deliberately attempting to delay the framing of charges. This assertion was part of the agency's argument against granting bail to Sisodia.

On the other hand, Sisodia's counsel argued for his release, pointing out that both the ED and the CBI are continuing to make arrests related to the money laundering and corruption case. Given the ongoing investigations and arrests, Sisodia's lawyer contended that there is no possibility of an early conclusion to the trial.

The court is continuing to hear further arguments regarding Sisodia's bail plea.
