CBI searches Sisodia’s bank locker; Delhi’s deputy CM says ‘have got clean chit’

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday searched Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia’s bank locker. The sleuths reached the branch at Sector 4 Vasundhara in Ghaziabad district of Uttar Pradesh to conduct the search, said people in the know. Sisodia was at the bank with his wife.

“The locker has jewellery worth about Rs ₹70,000 belonging to my children and wife. I am happy that the prime minister got my home raided, my locker searched, but nothing was found. My family and I have got a clean chit in all the raids ordered by the prime minister,” Sisodia told the media after CBI’s search operation.

Earlier this month, CBI had booked Sisodia and 15 others on charges of corruption, criminal conspiracy, falsification of accounts and undue advantage in connection with the Delhi government’s liquor policy.

Searches were carried out at Sisodia’s residence and 30 locations in Delhi, Gurugram, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Lucknow and Bengaluru. The agency had said that look out circulars had been issued against eight private individuals and entities allegedly involved in the case.

The agency has already commenced questioning of the accused in the case. Sisodia has denied all the accusations. CBI has alleged that irregularities were committed including in modifications of excise policy, extending undue favours to the licencees, waiver/reduction in licence fee, extension of L-1 license without approval etc.

The FIR has been registered on the complaint of the Ministry of Home Affairs which sought enquiry into the matter of alleged irregularities in framing and implementing the excise policy for 2021-22.
