The Enforcement Directorate has officially confirmed that they have conducted searches at the homes of Bibhav Kumar, who serves as the personal secretary to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and individuals connected to the Aam Aadmi Party. This search operation is a crucial step in an ongoing investigation into allegations of money laundering. The authorities are leaving no stone unturned as they diligently follow every lead and gather substantial evidence to ensure a comprehensive and unbiased inquiry into the matter.
As part of the ongoing operation, authorities are currently conducting raids on approximately 10 locations in the national capital. The purpose of these searches remains uncertain at this time, as it is unclear whether they are related to an ongoing investigation into money laundering or if they are connected to a completely new case.
The central agency is currently engaged in investigations and closely monitoring the activities and whereabouts of several individuals, including the office of a party of Rajya Sabha MP and national treasurer N D Gupta.
Atishi, a prominent Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader, responded to the recent raids by accusing the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government of attempting to intimidate their leaders. “I will be doing an explosive exposé on ED at 10 am tomorrow! Watch this space…” - said Atishi.
The ED has made its stance on the allegations clear as they have pointed out Jagdish Kumar Arora, who was the chief engineer of the Delhi Jal Board, was given a contract for a supply, and installation, to NKG Infrastructure Ltd. for a total cost of ₹38 crore, despite the company not meeting the required expertise.
The recent development occurred several days subsequent to the Enforcement Directorate's action of approaching a court in Delhi to file charges against Kejriwal. This legal action was taken due to Kejriwal's repeated failure to appear before the court in relation to the Delhi excise policy case, marking the fifth instance of him evading the summons. This probe has been deemed as a politically motivated move to downgrade the other side, by Kejriwal.
