CM Arvind Kejriwal: ED team has reached the official residence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. A large number of police forces have been deployed outside his official residence. Sources are saying that ten ED officers have reached the residence of Arvind Kejriwal. An ED official said that for now Kejriwal will be interrogated. Along with this, ED has also arrived with a search warrant. The investigating agency will also search the entire house. On Thursday itself, Delhi High Court had refused to grant interim relief from arrest to Arvind Kejriwal. Meanwhile, Section 144 has been imposed outside Kejriwal's house.

Questions are being asked to Kejriwal

Joint Director Kapil Raj is leading the ED team that reached Kejriwal's house. His mobile phone has been taken away from Kejriwal. Many questions are being asked to Kejriwal related to liquor scam. Questions related to liquor policy are being asked to Kejriwal regarding the meetings held at Kejriwal's house. ED's investigation has revealed that Rs 338 crore reached the Aam Aadmi Party during the proceedings of the crime. In fact, during the hearing in the Supreme Court on the bail of Manish Sisodia, the Enforcement Directorate had placed a money trail of Rs 338 crore in front of the court. In which it was proved that during the excise policy, Rs 338 crore reached the Aam Aadmi Party from the liquor mafia. Arvind Kejriwal is the patron of the party, hence it is necessary to interrogate him.

Indospirit director Sameer Mahendru, accused in the excise scam, told the ED during interrogation that Vijay Nair, very close to Arvind Kejriwal, had made him meet Arvind through Face Time app. In which Arvind Kejriwal told him that Vijay Nair is his man. And he must trust Nair. A meeting regarding the new excise policy was also held at Arvind Kejriwal's house. Manish Sisodia's then secretary C Arvind told during interrogation that there was a margin profit of 6% in the excise policy, which was increased to 12% only with the approval of Arvind Kejriwal. That is, Arvind Kejriwal also had a role in making the excise policy.

Saurabh Bhardwaj also reached outside CM residence

After the ED team reached the CM residence, Delhi Government Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj reached there. However, as per the rules, no one is allowed to go in and out of the raid premises.
