Delhi excise policy scam: ED files first charge sheet against businessman Sameer Mahendru

After the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed its first prosecution complaint (charge sheet) on Saturday against businessman Sameer Mahendru. A case has been registered against the businessman in the Delhi excise policy scam case.

The law enforcement agency informed the court that the charge sheet is approx 3,000 pages long. The case has been filed against Mahendru as the 60-day mandatory period was getting expired today.

The Delhi government’s now-repealed excise policy is being looked into by the CBI and ED to see if it was designed to give makers and distributors of alcohol illegal and unlawful favours at the cost of the government exchequer.

The ED stated that it was simply filing the charge sheet against Sameer Mahendru for the time being when it filed the document before the Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi. Charge sheets against the other accused will be filed later because the investigation is still ongoing.

On Friday, the CBI filed its first charge sheet in the Delhi excise scam against businessman Vijay Nair and Abhishek Boinpally and five other suspects, excluding Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s name. Nair and Boinpally were arrested by the CBI but recently granted bail by a special court. They are still in custody in connection with the Enforcement Directorate case against them.

The ED conducted up to 169 search operations earlier this month and detained several top officials, including the promoter of the liquor company Indospirit, the general manager of the company, and the full-time director and promoter of Aurobindo Pharma.

The central agency had filed a money laundering case in August after taking note of a report made by the CBI that had named the Delhi Deputy Chief Minister as one of the defendants, in addition to senior bureaucrats of the Delhi government and others.

The 12th list of seven candidates for the Lok Sabha elections, which are scheduled to start on Friday, was announced by the BJP on Tuesday. Among the seven candidates is Chhatrapati Udayanraje Bhosale, the 13th descendant of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, who will contest from Satara, Maharashtra, and Abhijit Das Bobby, who represents Diamond Harbour in West Bengal.

The current MP for the Trinamool Congress, Abhishek Banerjee, has been paired against Abhijit Das Bobby, who contested unsuccessfully for the Diamond Harbour seat in the general elections of 2009 and 2014.

Abhishek Banerjee won in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections with 40.31 percent of the vote, while Abhijit Das secured 15.92 percent of the vote to finish third. Dr. Abul Hasnat of CPI(M), who received 34.66% of the vote, came in second.

With 7,91,127 votes, the leader of the Trinamool Congress party was able to hold onto the seat in 2019. Nilanjan Roy of the BJP received 4,70,533 votes, while Fuad Halim of the CPI(M) secured third place with 93,941 votes.

The 13th descendant of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Chhatrapati Udayanraje Bhosale, is another prominent figure on the list. He is contesting for the Satara Lok Sabha constituency in Maharashtra as a member of the BJP.

In the 2019 by-election, Bhosale—a former leader of the NCP who joined the BJP in 2022—lost the seat. There has been a back-and-forth in the seat on the Lok Sabha election candidate between the BJP and NCP.

Shashikant Shinde has received his ticket from the NCP (SP).

Shashank Mani Tripathi from Deoria and Thakur Vishwadeep Singh from Firozabad are the final candidates on the BJP’s 12th list.

In Uttar Pradesh, there are two seats.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Som Prakash’s wife Anita Som Prakash, who is a resident of Punjab, will contest for the Hoshiarpur seat in lieu of her husband.

Manjeet Singh Manna Miawind from Khadoor Sahib and Parampal Kaur Sidhu from Bathinda are the other two candidates, both of whom are from Punjab.

My name is Arvind Kejriwal and I am not terrorist: Sanjay Singh reads Delhi CM’s message from Tihar Jail

AAP MP Sanjay Singh read out a message from jailed Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh today read a message of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal during a press confrence. The AAP leader said that  Kejriwal  has sent a message from Tihar Jail in which he said that he is not a terrorist.

Sanjay Singh said, Tihar jail conveyed a message from Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, who served like a son and a brother for the country and the people of Delhi. The Aap MP further read CM’s message, which says, “My name is Arvind Kejriwal and I am not a terrorist.”

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann was compelled to meet the three-time elected chief minister of Delhi through a glass. This clearly shows that the prime minister dislikes Arvind Kejriwal,” the AAP MP claimed.

Arvind Kejriwal is among the people arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case. Arvind Kejriwal is being held under judicial custody at the Tihar jail at the moment.

A Delhi court extended Arvind Kejriwal’s judicial custody on Monday until April 23. The Delhi High Court’s decision to reject the AAP national convenor’s appeal against his ED arrest and subsequent remand in the excise policy issue was challenged by the convenor in an earlier Supreme Court application.

Sanjay Singh also claimed during the press conference that efforts are made to demoralize every day. He also said, Arvind Kejriwal is this person, he is not formed of the same clay. The more you attempt to break him, the more resilient he will become. CM Bhagwant Mann broke down in tears yesterday at the meeting. They are all affected by this, but the BJP and PM Modi should be ashamed of themselves, the AAP MP claimed.

Bhagwant Mann met Arvind Kejriwal in Tihar jail on Monday, where he claimed he was being treated like a terrorist. Meanwhile, the AAP announced that its Delhi government would begin operating from jail in a proper format, with the chief minister scheduled to meet with two ministers starting next week.
