Central Bureau of Investigation has registered an FIR against Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and 14 others in connection with an alleged excise policy case. Excise officials, liquor company executives, dealers along with unknown public servants and private persons have too been booked in the case.
A total of 15 persons have been named in the FIR including Sisodia for criminal conspiracy, falsification of account and undue advantage.
Meanwhile, according to a CBI official, searches were conducted in seven States and a Union Territory, including the premises of former Delhi Excise Commissioner Arava Gopi Krishna under whose tenure, the revamped Excise Policy was approved.
The Delhi CM stated that CBI has raided Sisodia's residence on the day when the picture of the Delhi Model and Sisodia appeared on the front page of America's biggest newspaper- New York Times. On July 30, Sisodia announced a rollback of the Excise Policy stating that only government outlets would sell liquor in Delhi from August 1.
