ED Raids Linked to AAP in Money Laundering Probe

In a major development, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has conducted raids at over 12 premises in Delhi, Chandigarh, and Varanasi, targeting individuals linked to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Those being raided include Arvind Kejriwal’s personal secretary Bibhav Kumar, Rajya Sabha MP ND Gupta, and former Delhi Jal Board member Shalabh Kumar.

Connection to Alleged Scam in Jal Board

The raids are part of a money laundering probe related to an alleged scam in the Delhi Jal Board. The ED is investigating two financial irregularities in connection to the case, which was initially registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Response from AAP

Addressing the press, Delhi minister Atishi expressed confidence, stating, “We are not afraid. There’s no evidence (of any irregularity). ED is trying to turn the accused into government witnesses.” The raids come just ahead of a scheduled press conference by AAP, where the party had hinted at making significant exposes.

Political Implications

The ED’s actions have added a political dimension to the ongoing probe, with AAP leaders asserting that there is no evidence of wrongdoing. The situation is likely to evolve with responses from those being investigated and further developments in the money laundering investigation.
